On February 25, 2016, guests gathered at the Florida home of Roberta and Stephen R. Weiner, longstanding members of the BIDMC community, to take part in the medical center’s annual Palm Beach event. This year’s event showcased the current landscape of cancer care and research, and highlighted leading experts who are creating more effective, personalized treatment options and leading landmark biomedical studies to tackle this devastating disease.
Moderated by former WCVB-TV anchors Natalie Jacobson and Susan Wornick, the program featured distinguished BIDMC cancer specialists Pier Paolo Pandolfi, M.D., Ph.D., Mark Callery, M.D., Manuel Hidalgo, M.D., Ph.D., Mary Jane Houlihan, M.D., and David McDermott, M.D. These extraordinary panelists discussed their tireless work to develop new diagnostic tests with fewer side effects, seamlessly integrate care, and deliver more effective and innovative treatment options to a wider range of cancer patients. BIDMC President and CEO Kevin Tabb, M.D., also provided an update on BIDMC’s recent activities and accomplishments beyond the realm of cancer. Bryan Rafanelli, BIDMC overseer and president of Rafanelli Events, helped to plan the evening.
