A Core Value of PBH is to collaborate with others. From the beginning, PBH worked together as a Coalition with numerous agencies to accomplish its goals and objectives. In 2008, the Coalition became an Advisory Council, which meets several times per year to network and to learn about each other’s work and activities. PBH arranges for educational presentations at such meetings, and participants are given opportunity to discuss current issues.
We had a wonderful showing of people at our last Coalition Meeting in March with Ryan Parnell as presenter. Mr. Parnell, who is the Harrington Cancer and Health Foundation Director of Operations and Special Programs, gave us some terrific information we all appreciated.
This month, we have invited Adair Walcot, Co-Founder and Director of Research and Resources, and Alexis Arnold, Co-Founder & Executive Director of Inside Out Foundation in Lubbock. This service organization is dedicated to making life better for people who are recovering from cancer and burns. Adair and Alexis are doing innovative things, and we believe you will find what they do interesting just as we did.
The program is scheduled for Tuesday, April 24 at noon. Please bring a sack lunch and join us in the PBH Conference Room in the Amarillo Building, 301 S. Polk, Suite 740 on the 7th Floor. You may need to park on the lot just across the street - north of our rear parking lot. The lot directly behind our building is sometimes full. Remember to bring business cards and information about upcoming activities in your organization.
