An Inspirational Story of Modern Medicine
1769.jpg The Fleet is excited to welcome Noah and Alexis Beery. The twins are featured in the exhibition Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code, and you can meet them in person on November 15!
Diagnosed early in life with cerebral palsy, the twin’s conditions seemed to get worse as they got older and seemed to resemble cerebral palsy less and less every year. In 2009, the technology for genome sequencing became available for the twins and changed their lives. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear their story.

The Fleet Remembers Pat Carter
1778.jpg Long-time Fleet champion Pat Carter passed away in early October. Pat’s primary community interest was the development and promotion of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center. She served many years of thoughtful stewardship on the board of trustees and was instrumental in shaping the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center through her leadership and commitment. One long-tenured staffer remembers, “She was one class act.” Pat was beloved by many and will certainly be missed.Full obituary
