Adam Pick:  Hey, everybody, it’s Adam, and I am here. Where? At Edwards Lifesciences, that’s right. Why am I here is a big question, and it is for the annual 2018 Patient Day in Irvine, California. You can see here, here’s some of the employees as they’re getting ready to welcome the patients that are going to be coming through those doors in just a few minutes.

The one thing that you also might want to see is what’s happening in the brand new atrium here at Edwards Lifesciences. It’s not just those people who work at Edwards; it’s the people who make the valves. Does it take a few people to make the valves?

Does it take five? You know, it takes over 1,000 stitches, and it takes a lot of people.  I’m going to show you who they are.  [applause, cheering]

These people are here. They’re here for you. Helping you live a better life.
