Dr. Muller will present Oncogene-Mediated Signaling in Transgenic Mouse Models of Human Breast Cancer. The seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, October 27 at 12:00 pm in SOM W331.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Inaugural Angie Fowler Lecture in Adolescent & Young Adult Oncology
Mark your calendars for the Inaugural Angie Fowler Lecture in Adolescent & Young Adult Oncology. Heidi Adams, Founder and Executive Director of Planet Cancer, will present Young Adults & Cancer: When Two Worlds Collide with Dr. John Letterio on Thursday, October 15 at 8:00 am in the Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital Amphitheatre.
The first half of the presentation will cover current medical data pertaining to AYA oncology. The second half provides a window into the world of a young adult with cancer, as Heidi addresses the unique psychosocial challenges faced by AYA patients and shows what "falling through the cracks" means on the front lines. The talk, which offers many practical suggestions on how to better relate to young adult patients, is illustrated by personal stories that vividly and humorously show the impact of current gaps in knowledge and access. The presentation ends with an overview of current activity in the young adult movement on the research and advocacy fronts, as well as information on resources available to both patients and physicians.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS– Lisa's Legacy 5K Run/Walk
The inaugural Lisa's Legacy 5K Run/Walk is on Sunday, October 18. The walk will begin at 8:30 am in the University Circle area, starting and finishing at the Museum of Natural History. Proceeds will benefit Lisa's Legacy Fund for Cancer Research and Education at ICC.
