Team Jack Co-Sponsors Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Webchat: What's New in Pediatric Brain Cancer?

Friday, May 29, 2015 to Monday, June 15, 2015

On Monday, June 15, 2015 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) at Harvard Medical School will be hosting a live webchat: What's New in Pediatric Brain Cancer?  This live webchat will feature the expertise of  Dr. Mark Kieran, MD, PhD, and Dr. Peter Manley, MD of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  When discussing the topic of pediatric brain cancer, many questions can be asked about treatment, research, and/or advances in this disease, but not always answered.  During this live Webchat, included in the DFCI Webchat series, those specific questions can be answered.  At Dana-Farber they provide training for new generations of physicians and scientists, designs programs that promote public health particularly among high-risk and underserved populations, and disseminates innovative patient therapies and scientific discoveries to our target community across the United States and throughout the world.   

"We are committed to finding effective therapies for every single one of these children diagnosed with brain cancer and that is absolutely critical to our goal, but it is also not just a matter of funding things at Harvard or in other parts of the United States at some point part of our responsibility through the Team Jack Foundation, we have to make a difference in Nebraska and the regional states." Dr. Mark Kieran, MD, PhD, made note of this at topic at the 2nd Annual Team Jack Gala in March 2015.  To have Dr. Mark  Kieran, MD, PhD, serve on our Team Jack Foundation Scientific Advisory Board is such a tremendous honor.  Thank you Dana-Farber Cancert Institute for allowing us to be a co-sponsor for the What's New in Pediatric Brain Cancer? live Webchat; this is an extremely humbling partnership.
