At the University of Rochester Medical Center, our most important priority is protecting and advancing the health and well-being of our patients, providers, employees, and community members.
You may have recently received an invitation in the mail for the Toast to Your Health Wine Auction. We are postponing the event, and that it will not be held on Saturday, September 18 as we had planned.
We will be in touch as soon as we confirm a new date. If you’ve already purchased tickets, or donated live or silent auction items, a staff member will contact you directly. For any other questions, contact URMC Constituent Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At 22, Emily Robbins was a new college grad who had started her first job and was training to run another marathon. Her life was upended when she was diagnosed with leukemia and had to undergo more than two years of treatment. “It’s because of the care I got from doctors and nurses at Wilmot: that’s why I’m here to tell my story,” says Emily. “Without cancer research, I wouldn’t be here today.”
“We have to start by identifying those with greater needs or who have faced a disproportionate cancer burden for decades,” says Paula Cupertino, PhD. As associate director of Wilmot’s new Office of Community Outreach and Engagement, Cupertino is working with the community to identify research gaps and open clinical trials that will reduce cancer incidence in our region.
