Ohio State Dedicates Comprehensive Breast Center in Honor of Stefanie Spielman
COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Ohio State University President E. Gordon Gee today announced the naming of The Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center, in honor of the Ohio State alumna, philanthropist and advocate. The Center is the only one of its kind in the Midwest to offer the full continuum of breast cancer care, from prevention and screening through detection, diagnosis and treatment. The Center is home to some of the nation’s leading breast cancer researchers and physicians, all singularly focused on preventing, detecting, treating and curing breast cancer.
“First and foremost, Stefanie made a difference in the lives of countless patients and their families in the fight against cancer,” said President Gee. “She touched those struggling with their diagnosis and treatments, helping to make their worlds more comfortable, more optimistic, and more affirmative. She possessed an uncommon combination of bravery, grace, and compassion that continues to resonate through her remarkable legacy.”
