At 211 degrees, water is hot. At 212 degrees, it boils and with boiling water comes steam and with steam you can power a train. One extra degree makes all the difference!  Since its inception, ALSAC SJCRH has always embraced the extra degree, going above and beyond with the patient family experience, medical research, sharing information, volunteer/donor experience, and employee experience. Participating members will have an opportunity to visit the St. Jude campus, learn about St. Jude history, leadership, career paths at ALSAC SJCRH, and the extra effort it takes to be truly successful.


  • Participants will experience ALSAC SJCRH via tours, speakers, and panelists.
  • Participants will appreciate moving from STEM to STEAM in order to best fuel their success – the extra effort makes all the difference.
  • Participants will understand the importance of embracing their passion and knowing their WHY.
  • Participants will appreciate the importance of being present and aware.
  • Participants will be introduced to the scope of work at ALSAC SJCRH and opportunities that exist.
  • Participants will be invited to engage in our St. Jude Leadership Society experience and other ALSAC initiatives.  


NSHSS has secured a discounted room block at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown Hotel. Additionally, NSHSS-provided transportation to the event venue at St. Jude Children's Hospital will depart from and return to this hotel.
