Looking Ahead to 2011 EB Events

Whenever we hear about upcoming EB fundraisers or promotional campaigns, we do our best to let everybody know about it, and certainly encourage all of our friends in the community to help do the same, to raise awareness about EB and in some cases, raise critical research dollars, by promoting through their own personal networks. Even if you can’t participate or be there in person, just telling your contacts across the country can build tremendous interest and support…so thank you in advance for helping us spread the word! Some events are still early in the planning stages, but we’ve provided some links and contact information to get more information should you need it.

Remember, if you know of any upcoming events, please let us know by emailing me at leslie.rader@hollisterwoundcare.com. If your event is being held sometime this month or next, be sure to leave a comment here at the blog or on our Facebook page with details and a link to more information!
