2018-2019 Annual Meeting Recap


Every year, we gather together to celebrate our incredible volunteers, our Board Members, and all of the things we’ve accomplished together over the last fiscal year. This year, we enjoyed an evening at Highmark full of networking and connection, several spoken words from our Chapter Board President, Joe Dowd, and an interactive research update from Dr. Piganelli, PhD, Associate Professor of Surgery, Immunology, and Pathology at UPMC Children’s Hospital.

We were honored to recognize and thank so many of our passionate volunteers, families, board members, and corporate partners during an amazing evening! THANK YOU to all who made our last fiscal year so amazing – we couldn’t do what we do without you!
