Braden Pleas presented a 7th grade Culture Fair project on scleroderma yesterday at Chimacum Middle School in Chimacum, Washington. His board was then chosen to be one of ten to be displayed at the Jefferson County Library for two weeks! The left side of the board is titled, "What is Scleroderma?" with photos from ISN of Raynaud's and joint contractures. Then, "Five New Things I Learned." The middle is "Celebrities Working for a Cure" and the lower left section is on ISN and his interview with ISN Founder and President, Shelley Ensz, along with a pocket of ISN brochures. The center section is, "A Day in the Life of My Mom", where he graphed his mother's pain scale throughout a full day. The right side of the board is titled "Components of Culture". The ISN thanks Braden for educating the public and raising awareness of scleroderma! (Also see Scleroderma School Reports) Posted 1-25-11.
