Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative

Crisis Communications

Parris Communications has strong expertise in the practice of Crisis Communications and Issues Management.  Parris managed statewide communications for the Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures initiative, to protect Missourians’ access to ethical cures and treatments involving embryonic stem cell research. Parris identified and engaged patients and advocates to share their compelling stories, developed proactive and reactive communications campaigns, provided 24/7 media monitoring and evolved campaign messages to ensure a greater understanding of the importance and safety of this medical research.

Voters approved the Missouri Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative, ensuring the research can continue in the state of Missouri, and providing Missouri residents the same access to cures and therapies that are allowed by federal law and available to all Americans.
