PPA Announces 2024 Awareness Week Committee Chair

Pheo Para Alliance is excited to announce that Chad Riding was recently confirmed by the 2024 Pheo Para Awareness Week Committee to serve as its Chair!!

Chad is a transportation planner and part-time teacher based in Sacramento, California, not too far from his hometown of Fresno. He was diagnosed with a pheochromocytoma on his left adrenal gland in June 2021 after a hypertensive crisis while recovering from an outpatient procedure in April 2021. The pheochromocytoma was removed on August 31, 2021, and his regular blood work and scans have been normal since.

In his spare time, Chad likes to spend time with friends and family, learn foreign languages, read, travel, and hit the gym. You might remember Chad from the “Back to the Phuture” presentation during Awareness Week last year.

We’re excited for the energy, enthusiasm and creativity that Chad will bring to this year’s Awareness Week planning and execution. If you’d like to be a part of the magic, it’s not too late to join the committee — just send us a note!
