Teaming Up: Headbands of Hope, North Carolina Children’s Hospital and PSI CRO

PSI CRO, Durham, NC, 29 October 2018  PSI CRO is partnering with Headbands of Hope to donate more than 200 headbands to children at North Carolina Children’s Hospital, one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals.

“We are very excited about this donation with Headbands of Hope,” says Sabine Kroher-Debuschewitz, PSI Director of Operations in North Carolina. “Headbands of Hope has made an incredible impact in the lives of so many children battling cancer, and their focus is close to our hearts at PSI. As a team, we’re thankful to have the opportunity to give back to the communities that we’re dedicated to.”

Headbands of Hope has donated headbands to every children’s hospital in America and in 13 different countries. Together, PSI and Headbands of Hope are hosting the donation event at North Carolina Children’s Hospital on October 30th. In addition to this event, the two organizations will coordinate donations in both San Francisco and Philadelphia at later dates. These locations are chosen based off of proximity to additional PSI offices in the US.
