Corporate citizenship, building relationships,
empowering people . . .
The people of Houston-based Marathon Oil Corporation certainly live by their code of "Working Together in Today's Global Economy." Their corporate citizenship focuses on several areas with education and health and human service issues, as well as empowering socially or economically disadvantaged populations among the Company's top priorities.
That's why their strong support of the "Ask a Texas Heart Institute Doctor" website feature, www.texasheart.org/heartdoctor is such a winning collaboration. This online forum makes more than three dozen of the world's top heart doctors available, through the worldwide web, to virtually anyone around the globe in need of detailed, knowledgeable, cutting-edge information about cardiovascular disease. Our physician/scientists have answered thousands of questions from across the United States and from 74 different countries, usually within 48 hours, and the website makes many of the answers available to all.
Marathon has global reach, which is why its employees understand the importance of making such lifesaving information available to everyone, including those individuals in the far corners of the world where such access is often limited or unavailable. And, as Marathon points out on its website their people are interested in building relationships that accomplish these goals.
| Marathon is pleased to provide support for this vital program which benefits not only the greater Houston community, but also the global community. The Ask a Texas Heart Institute Doctor program is also highly complementary to other heart-health related initiatives that we support, such as those of the American Heart Association, which help address the global issues of heart disease and stroke.|
—Clarence P. Cazalot, Jr., Marathon president and CEO
That's why we are so appreciative of our relationship with Marathon.
