WHAT DOES THE 2016 GALA FOR LIFE BENEFIT?
UAMS RADIATION ONCOLOGY CENTER (ROC)
We are excited to announce that this year’s Gala for Life special mission will help support the UAMS Radiation Oncology Center, a vital area of patient care and treatment at the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
With the help of the Gala proceeds, the Radiation Oncology Center will be able to expand its research efforts, with an emphasis on new interventions to minimize adverse effects of radiation therapy. This research is particularly important for long-term cancer survivors who deserve the best quality of life after treatment. Our researchers are conducting highly respected national research on this subject right here in Arkansas!
Additionally, funds will help support our fellowship training program and critical technology, including state-of-the-art linear accelerators, Gamma Knife and other radiation therapies.
