Cycling for science
In July, the 32nd annual Prouty raised a record $2.6 million with the help of 5,800 cyclists, walkers, rowers, and golfers, as well as many more volunteers. The funds will go toward research by Geisel and Dartmouth-Hitchcock scientists and toward patient services at Norris Cotton Cancer Center.
In mid-September, Dartmouth was home to the Preventing Overdiagnosis conference, hosted by TDI and the British Medical Journal. Speakers at the conference included Otis Brawley, chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, and Barry Kramer, director of the Division of Cancer Prevention at the National Cancer Institute.
