Interested in Cancer Research?
We're beginning monthly meetings that connect Cornell doctoral students
studying cancer and those of us directly touched by the disease. The
focus of these meetings will be cancer research, but discussed in terms
accessible to the layperson.
Each meeting will have a general theme related to cancer and cancer research. (e.g., what's the connection between cancer, diabetes, and sugar? Will we eventually stop classifying cancer by its organ of origin? How do we specifically target metastatic disease?). For each meeting, we'll have 1 or 2 students provide brief (5 minute) presentations - in very clear lay language - to provide background.
Join us for an organizational meeting on Wednesday, May 8, from 6-7, here at the Cancer Resource Center. We'll brainstorm potential topics and plan the sessions that will begin in June. For more information, contact Bob Riter at email@example.com.

Kudos to artist Roberta Dixon who recently recently donated $400 to
the Cancer Resource Center - $100 for each of the paintings she sold at a show in Watkins Glen. Yesterday, Roberta walked in with an extra $100 check from another painting she sold! Beginning this weekend, her work will be featured in a juried show in Patterson, NY. If you're in the Hudson Valley, be sure to drop by!

shared her design talents with us all semester!
