This Friday is a Dress Down Day! This month we will be raising money for the UPenn Orphan Disease Center, which matches donations dollar for dollar to fund grants specifically focused on Cystic Fibrosis research. CF is a hereditary disease in which the body produces thick and sticky mucus that can clog the lungs and obstruct the pancreas. 1 in 3,400 babies born will have CF which can shorten their lifespans. Join HOSA in dressing down to raise funds for research to help develop treatments for those affected. $2 or 15 Biotech Bucks.
