Cancer Support Team (CST) is hosting its 21st Annual Gayle K. Lee Health Awareness Luncheon on Thursday, October 10th at the Scarsdale Golf Club in Hartsdale, NY. This year’s presentation begins at 11:30 with featured speaker Elizabeth Comen, MD, an Assistant Attending Physician on the Breast Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. She will discuss one of the most promising areas in cancer treatment: “Immunotherapy Today.”
Dr. Comen splits her time between seeing breast cancer patients and her research on immunotherapy trials. These trials are not specific to breast cancer. One trial is investigating how mutations in immune cells can affect cancer in breast, lung, and colon cancer patients. Dr. Comen is also featured in a commercial for MSKCC entitled “Elizabeth’s Story” now airing nationally.
The Luncheon’s Honorary Chair is Carol Petrillo, of Mamaroneck, NY. The Co-Chairs are Betty Kelly and Jean Meyerowitz both of Larchmont, NY. Tickets for the Luncheon are $125, a portion of which is tax-deductible. Additional ticket levels are available for table sponsorships and a post-Luncheon meet and greet with Dr. Comen including an intimate Q&A. Seating is limited, and reservations are required.
