An intimate and interactive meeting that focused on breakthroughs in medical oncology and “quarterbacking” cancer care was held at the home of trustee Mary Ellen Kanoff and her husband Chris, who graciously hosted the April 27 dinner. Presenters were medical oncologists Santosh Kesari, MD, PhD, Marilou Terpenning, MD, and Steven J. O’Day, MD. The doctors spoke on a variety of topics: precision medicine which uses targeted treatment based on the genetic profile of a tumor, living with cancer and life after cancer, and immuno-oncology— lifesaving treatments harnessing the immune system to fight cancer that are part of a revolution in cancer care.
