Let's Look at What We've Done
Updated: Mar 7, 2022
If this is your first time hearing about us, we are Bobcats, Let’s Learn about Lymphoma! Partnered with PRSSA National, our Scripps PRSSA chapter is competing in the 2022 National Bateman Case Study Competition. Over the course of the last month, our team has implemented a PR campaign for the Lymphoma Research Foundation aiming to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms of adolescent and young adult (AYA) lymphoma. We’ve been cultivating our campaign through campus events and social media outreach.
We are officially over half way through our campaign that runs from February 7th to March 11th! We hope that you all have enjoyed some of the events we’ve held and learned lots along the way. Let’s recap what we’ve done so far:
