- UR Medicine introduced Wilmot Cancer Institute, a new organizational structure incorporating all of its clinical and research programs in cancer. With the Wilmot Cancer Center on the URMC campus as the hub, the new Institute now includes seven satellite cancer treatment facilities throughout western New York. This exciting growth—which will give patients from surrounding areas better access to Wilmot’s premier care and expertise—would not be possible without annual support.
- Wilmot launched a $30 million campaign focused on cancer research, and George Eastman Circle members are playing a key role in providing the unrestricted funds needed to reach this goal. The campaign is leveraging opportunities to bring precision medicine to patients more quickly and ultimately save more lives.
- Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta officially opened. Combined with Pluta’s program and its history of integrative care, the Rochester-based facility now serves as the home for the renowned multidisciplinary breast cancer program that Wilmot has built in recent years.
