> What is our Regional Conference’s Community Service Initiative?
  • This year, PRAdvanced: What’s Your Story? is taking a new approach to our community service initiative. We will be making cards for the kids at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital! All you have to do is show up to the conference and be ready to make some colorful and creative cards for kids before we hear from our first keynote of the day. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. The best part is that no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. St. Jude makes it so that families do not have to pay medical bills for their child’s treatment. Let’s help make the kids’ days a little brighter by sending them cards!
