Our Name

The name Talaris comes from “talaria” the winged sandals of the Greek messenger God Hermes (Roman Mercury). They were said to be made by the god Hephaestus of imperishable gold and they flew the god as swift as any bird. This imagery aligns with the message of hope we bring to patients living with conditions caused by immune intolerance.
