Our Community Impact

We have a significant opportunity to improve the health and lives of those we serve around the globe. In 2021, our communities needed our support to combat the ongoing pandemic, rebuild after natural disasters, and address health and education disparities among underserved populations.

Our ability to leverage our operations for good in our communities remains a top focus for our corporate philanthropy and volunteering efforts. Labcorp, our employees and The Labcorp Charitable Foundation work collaboratively on initiatives that positively impact communities across the globe and align with the focus areas of health and welfare, education and community.
