Katie Couric Visits

June 06, 2019

Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer Hospital welcomed Katie Couric to for our Celebration of Cancer Survivorship on May 23. As co-founder of Stand Up to Cancer, Katie began her visit by joining our Phase I Program for their weekly meeting. Lieping Chen presented his latest research endeavors during the meeting and she was able to meet members of the Phase I team. She then welcomed nearly 400 patients, cancer survivors, and family members to Harkness Auditorium where we discussed her personal story, her advocacy work, cancer screening education, among other causes she champions.
