Organization Mission: The Lotus flower grows in the mud and blooms clean and pure. That is the concept Mei Liu and Dr. Jengyu Lai wanted to portray when they created their non-profit organization, The Lotus Health Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to provide evidence-based education and preventative services to empower individuals to successfully manage or prevent chronic illness and decrease medical costs through healthy lifestyle management, resulting in decreased needs for medical interventions. In other words, to educate and bring the community together around one common purpose: living a fuller, healthier life.

Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that Cbeam will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, Cbeam's distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevancies with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements.

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. Cbeam could be an interesting first step.
