PENS Announces COOKIES FOR A CAUSE Partnership!
Spread the word about Central Precocious Puberty (CPP)! PENS and
AbbVie come together to raise awareness for CPP.
Our "Cookies for a Cause" campaign is designed to help spread the
word about CPP, so families and healthcare providers can learn to
recognize the signs of CPP and seek timely diagnosis and treatment.
Each time you help spread the word about CPP, we’ll add up to 4
cookies to the virtual cookie jar. When the jar is completely filled,
and we reach our goal of 10,000 cookies, AbbVie will make a donation to
the Pediatric Endocrinology Nursing Society (PENS).
