Advancement News - December 2012
Throughout the day of January 30, Channel 13 News will feature a sharp focus on the Wilmot Cancer Center and the research underway to fight the war against cancer. As part of the “Planting Seeds of Hope” day-long event, during each newscast - beginning at 5:00 a.m. and running through the 6:00 news - Channel 13 will feature segments with URMC researchers and patients.
This event – designed to raise awareness of and generate funds for seed research - will feature live interviews with Wilmot physicians and scientists during Channel 13’s newscasts throughout the day. During this time, viewers will be encouraged to call a special phone bank manned by Wilmot staff and supporters to make donations to support seed research at Wilmot. Seed funding is vitally important to researchers, providing funds that enable them to collect essential data and form the foundation of research that will allow them to compete for larger, federal grants.
Plan on joining us!
