Helping to Discover Treatments and Cures for Devastating Childhood Diseases Since 1999
Founded in 1999, the Phoenix Women's Board of the Steele Children's Research Center, affectionately known as PANDA, supports discovery processes to improve treatments and cures for devastating childhood diseases. The strong and unique partnership between the PANDA members and the researchers and physicians at the Steele Center has made it possible for us to embody our name, People Acting Now Discovering Answers.
The 2014 “Children Helping Children” Fashion Show proceeds will continue to fund the PANDA Children’s Autoimmune Disorders Project and endowment to help unravel the mystery of common autoimmune issues among children - like type 1 diabetes, juvenile arthritis, Crohn’s/colitis, severe food allergies, eosinophilic esophagitis, and celiac disease.
We are grateful for the ongoing support from the community and look forward to a continued partnership that improves the lives of children not only in Arizona, but across the Unites States and beyond.
