Senior Vice President and Managing Director of the Campaign for Grade-Level Reading at the Annie E. Casey Foundation since 2010, Mr. Smith calls himself a “recovering law professor,” acknowledging that work as a corporate and securities lawyer helps him appreciate the private sector’s role and the value of cross-sector collaboration. Convening “unusual allies” and “unlikely champions” is a hallmark of Mr. Smith’s work at the Foundation—from supporting fathers’ critical role in children’s lives to mobilizing communities as change agents in improving outcomes for vulnerable children and families. As the Foundation seeks a brighter future for children at risk of poor educational, economic, social and health outcomes, Mr. Smith has been forging consensus around ensuring that they reach the milestone of reading on grade level by the end of third grade. “Focusing on helping the youngest children succeed in school was the logical next step to advance the Foundation’s two-generation strategy for attacking intergenerational poverty,” he declares, referring to efforts to assist low-income parents to succeed economically while improving access to high-quality, early childhood learning opportunities. Mr. Smith made his early mark in academia by teaching corporations and securities regulation at the University of Pennsylvania, but his years as chief of staff and special counsel to the Philadelphia School District helped him grasp “the interplay between what was going on in schools and classrooms and what was going on in the lives of the children at home and in their communities,” he says. Working to “put families at the center of the Foundation’s efforts to improve outcomes for disadvantaged kids” numbers among his proudest accomplishments. He is “helping to build a culture where people are encouraged to take risks and to get personally involved with the work” As Mr. Smith remarks, “What crystallizes the moral imperative to act is the awareness and belief that acting can make a difference.”

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Campbell previously served as the Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs, a position he held since 1998. He brings a deep understanding of the Foundation's work to his role, drawn from his 17 years with the organization. Most recently, he oversaw the Foundation's research, drug discovery and development program, and directed clinical research, the Foundation's network of CF care centers, clinical training programs and the national patient registry database. He has more than 25 years' experience providing direct clinical care to people with CF, most recently at Johns Hopkins CF Care Center and at Vanderbilt's CF Care Center. “This is an exciting time for the Foundation as we enter a new era of research, engagement and support on behalf of the CF community,” says Dr. Campbell. “I am committed to advancing the mission that has guided the Foundation from its beginnings 60 years ago: to help people with CF live healthier, longer lives, while we search for a cure...” Under his leadership, the Foundation will continue to work towards new therapies and improve existing ones to help people with CF manage their symptoms. The Foundation is pursuing bold new strategies and technologies to attack the disease at its genetic level, which could one day lead to a cure. It also will connect people with CF with comprehensive programs and services that can help them afford their medications and treatments, as well as fully benefit from their health insurance coverage. ​

NEW LOCATION ON WALTER REED CAMPUS: Please note that Bingo Night has now been moved into the newly completed USO Warrior and Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road.  Multipurpose Room A and B. Please park ONLY in the America Garage. 

Join Rotary and Rotaract club members in providing an evening of bingo entertainment for recovering soldiers and their visiting family members at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (formerly known as Bethesda Naval Hospital) on the third Thursday of every month.

Dinner and set-up begin at 5:00 p.m. with the start of bingo play at 6:00 p.m.
 

As those attending must be on the security clearance at the hospital's entrance, please register online and/or contact Shelton Williams no later than 3 p.m. on the Monday prior to the month's event. You will need to have a driver's license or other photo ID to show the security guard and the name registered must match your name as shown on the ID. If you have not previously done so, please include your driver's license number in the comments field when you register online.

Arriving By Metro: The easiest way to come to the hospital is by Metro, as the main entrance is located directly across from the Medical Center station on the Red Line. Cross Wisconsin Ave., turn left and walk north to the North Gate.

Arriving By Car: The hospital's address is 8901 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20889. From DC, proceed north on Wisconsin Avenue just beyond downtown Bethesda and past the intersection with Jones Bridge Road. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center will be on your right (most noticeable is the tall central building). Enter by the second or North Entrance. Please keep in mind that traffic on Wisconsin Avenue in front of the hospital can be heavy during the evening rush hour so you may want to allow extra time to reach the entrance. Please park ONLY in the America Garage, as parking in other lots may may make you subject to ticketing or towing. 

At the Gate: Present your photo ID to the guard in the Security Booth and then proceed to the USO Warrior & Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road, Multipurpose Rooms A& B (see base map here). If driving, you must park in the American Parking Garage. Cars parked in other areas may be towed.
