Welcome to the Friends of NCBDDD!
The Friends of NCBDDD is a coalition of government and private sector participants who work together to enhance the mission and activities of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities (NCBDDD) in identifying the causes of birth defects and developmental disabilities; helping children to develop and reach their full potential; and promoting health and well-being among people of all ages with disabilities, including blood disorders.
Become a Champion!
The Friends of NCBDDD Executive Committee is excited to report that they have collaborated with NCBDDD to develop four Friends focus areas:
The Executive Committee needs your help to serve as a Champion in one or more of the focus areas listed above. As a Champion, you would recruit Friends who have an interest in the particular focus areas as well as have the opportunity to provide content area expertise, join the newly formed Friends Communications Committee to coordinate messaging, and help tailor specific messages for key target audiences. The Executive Committee is looking for Friends that have expertise in communications, marketing, government relations, and family member experience. The time commitment would involve a 1 year term, with an option to renew for an additional year. It would also involve a monthly commitment of 1-2 hours, including joining the Communications Committee calls. Click here to read more about the specific responsibilities of a Champion.
If you are interested in serving as a Champion, please contact the Friends Chair, Adriane Griffen at email@example.com. It’s a great way to connect with the Executive Committee, NCBDDD, and other members of the Friends!
