Street Lab also sends kits around the world so that others can do the same.  Mr. Eigerman is a corporator and regular donor to Anna Jaques Hospital, now part of Beth Israel Lahey Health (www.ajh.org/).  He is committed to ensuring that this small, regional hospital continues to serve all community members in the Lower Merrimack Valley.
