We invite them for food and wine in the Norris lobby which we convert into a party space. We invite patients and physicians to talk about their experiences and about new developments at our center and the progress we have made in the last year.
- USC Colon Cancer Reception
- Sunday, March 6, 2010
- 12 noon
- Norris lobby
This has always been one of the most exciting days for us because we see our patients not wearing our white coats but with a wine glass in their hands.
We also see family members of patients who have passed away come and enjoy seeing us again and meeting old friends as part of their grieving process.
It is very emotional but also raises a lot of hope for our patients and gives us the important sense we all work together and have the same goal.
If you live in Los Angeles, please come and visit us on Sunday March 6th at noon in the Norris lobby (parking is free in Biggy Street).
We have done this for ten years and are very proud of the progress we have made in the laboratory and clinic which directly translated into more cures and longer and better lives.
Our progress is only possible because our patients are willing to give us blood, extra tissue, and participate in clinical trials, which is critical to advance our understanding of this disease. The more we know the better we can develop new treatments.
