Also in attendance were Campaign for Kids Honorary Chair Nancy Carlson, CISDR President & CEO Dr. Judith Allen, CISDR Board Chair Blake Lewis and Board Members Paul Stephens, Bill Guess and Kendria Taylor. Dr. Allen and Ms. Carlson gave brief speeches on the importance of the Campaign, as well as a detailed snapshot of the day-in-the-life of CISDR campus based services.
