St. Jude was recently awarded as a recipient of the Microsoft Corp.'s 2019 Health Innovations Award. Since it's unveiling in April 2018, more than 800 people from 400 institutions have registered with St. Jude Cloud.

Today, across the United States, and especially here in Memphis, TN we remember and honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We experience his lasting impact as we work to create a better society for our children.
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
We hope everyone had safe and happy holiday celebrations! Here's a little greeting from the St. Jude faculty and staff.
Last week we held our first St. Jude Global Alliance meeting here in Memphis, Tennessee. We welcomed 167 participants from 52 different countries to this inaugural meeting. Dr. Downing, CEO, spoke about St. Jude's plan (the first of its kind) to influence the care of over 30% of the world's children suffering with cancer over the next decade. Essentially, the goal is to influence care through education of the global clinical workforce treating cancer, strengthening health systems caring for children with cancer, and advancing knowledge through cutting-edge research. We are excited about this initiative and its implications for children worldwide.
In 1987 our founder, Danny Thomas, declared AIDS a catastrophic disease of children. Shortly after St. Jude introduced its first HIV/AIDS clinic for children. Today, more than 250 patients are part of our Pediatric AIDS Clinical Trial Unit, which is designated as a "Center of Excellence" by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. This past weekend we acknowledged World Aids Day (December 1st), all the children suffering around the world with this disease, and the strides St. Jude Researchers and Clinicians are making to educate, treat, and prevent childhood HIV/AIDS.
