We Need


"For me, education is the way to a better future. That's why I challenge myself to always be learning on-the-job at Philips as I help create innovations such as the Hemodynamic Instability Indicator which continue to define the future of healthcare. And it's why I continue to pursue my passion of teaching science, engineering, (and even robot design) to the next generation of brilliant minds once a week at a local area middle school. Philips empowers me to improve lives both on and off the job, and that generates the energy behind everything I do." - Abigail Flower, Lifelong Educator / Sr. Member Research Staff (Briarcliff Manor, NY)
