The primary mission of the National Press Foundation is to increase journalists' knowledge of complex issues in order to improve public understanding. The foundation recognizes and encourages excellence in journalism through its awards and programs.

"The National Press Foundation deeply appreciates the support from Bayer for our annual Cancer Issues program," said NPF President & Chief Operating Officer Bob Meyers. "This enlightened contribution enables us to fulfill our mission of providing an independent program to journalists at no cost, an especially valuable matter in a time of severely restricted newsroom budgets. As the news media realign, educated journalists working on multiple platforms become increasingly important for the public's need to know. The Bayer contribution enables that process to take place."

"Bayer is proud to support the NPF in their efforts to provide outstanding educational programs with renowned cancer scientists to help further an improved understanding of the latest research on this important and complex topic," said Raymond F. Kerins Jr., senior vice president and head of Communications, Public Affairs and Policy, Bayer Corporation.
