CRAG Launched on April 19; Featured Speaker: Cancer Advocate Jamie Holloway
On Tuesday, April 19 the Cancer Research Advocacy Group (CRAG) was launched on the University of Illinois campus. CRAG, which is being spearheaded by Erik Nelson and Zeynep Madak-Erdogan, will promote interactions between cancer survivors, researchers, and clinicians.
As part of the launch festivities, Jamie Holloway, an Illinois alumnus and patient advocate in Washington, D.C., visited campus. She spoke to a packed room of graduate students in the morning, a faculty group at noon, and then attended the CRAG kickoff reception in the evening. Her insights as a scientist and breast cancer survivor were inspirational and informative as CRAG is getting off the ground at the University of Illinois.
