Spreading the Word
On Nov. 16 in New York City, approximately 40 people gathered to attend a regional reception of The James Ambassadors Society and learn more about research-based patient care taking place at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James).
Sharen and Charles Turney, longtime advocates of the OSUCCC – James, hosted this evening of conversation and education. Guests heard remarks from OSUCCC Director and James CEO Michael A. Caligiuri, MD (left), and Doug Ulman, President and CEO of Pelotonia (center). Pelotonia is an annual grassroots bicycle tour that raises money for cancer research at Ohio State.
The James Ambassadors Society was established in 2012 as a subcommittee of the James Foundation Board. Its purpose is to serve as the premier advocacy group for OSUCCC – James. Composed of community leaders and supporters, this educational and advocacy group is focused on learning about and sharing the latest news and discoveries in cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and cures taking place at the OSUCCC – James.
The society’s regional receptions engage other parts of the country and help build a stronger OSUCCC– James presence outside of Ohio. For more information, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 614-685-5966.
