The Emerging Leadership Board (ELB)

We are a dedicated group of up-and-coming professionals between the ages of 25 and 40 who raise community awareness and funds on behalf of the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center through personal and professional connections.

Our Puprose

The ELB was formed out of necessity for the UW Carbone Cancer Center to grow and become more defined within the state. We provide the cancer center with a “built-in” volunteer base and allows the UWCCC to expand by introducing the cancer center into businesses of our members.

Our History

Since the ELB’s inception in March of 2011, we provide over 300 volunteers hour each year at UWCCC events, organize public tours of the Wisconsin Institute for Medical Research and continuously raises awareness of the cancer center.
