The National Cancer Center Is Soliciting Members for Its Junior Committee – a Next Generation Leadership Opportunity

 

Founded in 1953, the primary goal of the National Cancer Center (NCC) is to fund research into cancer’s causes, its treatment and cure.  NCC is currently funding researchers at top-flight universities throughout the country, including NYU, The Rockefeller University, Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Duke University.

NCC is forming a Junior Committee of like-minded young professionals who have been touched by cancer in some way and want to get involved in the effort to increase cancer survival rates, develop more effective treatments and, ultimately, find a cure.

The NCC Junior Committee will engage in various activities to help raise funds for and build awareness of NCC and its mission.  It will be comprised of young professionals up to the age of 35 located in New York City and its environs.

“Joining the NCC Junior Committee has been an extremely rewarding way to utilize my professional skills and enhance my leadership experience, all while benefiting a cause that’s very close to my heart. After my father passed away from lymphoma in 2015, I searched intently for a way to honor his legacy and join the fight for a cure. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that is enabling groundbreaking research nationwide, performed by some of the most brilliant minds in oncology  because research is the only way we will eliminate this disease.”
