Dr. John Chabot Greeting Patients
Dr. John Chabot and Dr. Gloria Su. Dr. Su works in laboratory research at Columbia University Medical Center and is a PanCAN Pilot Grant award recipient.
The Pancreas Center was invited by the Manhattan Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PANCAN) to the second annual Cookin' Up a Cure food tasting event, which took place on May 19, 2009 at the Frederick P. Rose Hall Home of Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Attendants enjoyed culinary delights prepared by some of New York City's finest chefs and bid on items in auctions where all proceeds went to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Our own Medical Director, Dr John Chabot was a guest speaker and our basic science researcher, Dr Gloria Su was also honored.
The Pancreas Center Team provided brochures and information about the Pancreas Center and Muzzi Mirza Prevention and Genetics Program.
It was wonderful to take part in an event for patients, family members, and supporters for research and spreading awareness of pancreatic cancer.
