The chapter founders are a group of students from universities all across the United States who will take their experiences working together with a nonprofit in the fall and replicate the Biokind chapter at Rice to support the organizations in their local states. These states include Virginia, California, Rhode Island, Georgia, and Wisconsin.
This fall, the chapter founders team will be working with ALS Texas, a nonprofit organization that provides support to patients with ALS and their families. They will help the organization analyze their donor datasets.
On October 3rd, the team kickstarted their project by meeting with the ALS representative.
Below is a picture of the team taken during the meeting:

We’re excited to see the results they present to ALS Texas in December!
