MD Anderson oncologists returned to West Palm Beach Jan. 31 for the institution’s Making Cancer History® educational seminar. Presenters included Ron DePinho, M.D., president; Ernest Hawk, M.D., vice president and division head, Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences; Christopher Logothetis, M.D., chair and professor, Genitourinary Medical Oncology, and co-leader of the Prostate Cancer Moon Shot; and Kelly Hunt, M.D., professor, Surgical Oncology. More than 130 enthusiastic attendees learned about innovative research in breast and prostate cancers, vital cancer prevention tips and breakthroughs made possible by the Moon Shots Program. The seminar raised $3,400 for the program.
The night before, 75 Palm Beach-area residents gathered at the home of Patrick Park to enjoy a Thanksgiving-themed feast and to learn more about the revolutionary work ongoing at MD Anderson.
“It’s our honor to visit Palm Beach and share insight into our fight to end this devastating disease,” DePinho says. “This seminar demonstrates the commitment of innovative thinkers in the Palm Beach area. We’re thankful for their continued leadership and generous support of our mission. Together, we’re Making Cancer History.”
