DeSales University and Down Syndrome Center Team Up

Here is an informative story of how a DeSales University(Center Valley, PA) marketing class taught by Dr. Susan McGorry, associate professor of business, planned and promoted an annual conference held by the Eastern Pennsylvania Down Syndrome Center. This annual event provides educational and social opportunities to parents, healthcare workers, friends and educators. This is a wonderful example of combining a college learning opportunity with community service. Perhaps your church, school or service organization might try something similar? How about an opportunity for your group to learn social network marketing by organizing a Facebook fundraising campaign for Research Down Syndrome and its mission of supporting Down syndrome cognitive research?
