The 10th annual Meso Foundation Symposium is taking place today and tomorrow, March 7th and 8th at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to top experts in mesothelioma presenting the latest medical information, the Symposium addresses topics and issues relevant to patients, caregivers and those who have lost loved ones to this disease.
Kazan Law Partner Gordon Greenwood will be attending the Symposium’s culminating event, the Celebration of Hope Gala Dinner on Friday March 8th, where the Bankhead Family Fund of the Kazan, McClain, Abrams, Fernandez, Lyons, Greenwood, Oberman, Satterley & Bosl Foundation Grant will be honored. The grant was given to Dr. Il-Jin Kim at The Regents of the University of California, San Francisco for “Fusion genes as therapeutic targets in malignant pleural mesothelioma”.
The Kazan, McClain, Abrams, Fernandez, Lyons, Greenwood, Oberman, Satterley & Bosl Foundation, Inc, was formed in 1994. We are proud to have had the opportunity over the years to contribute over $20 million in grants to a wide array of community and civic organizations, including $6 million for mesothelioma research. We heartily support the theme of the Meso Foundation 2013 Symposium—“All In” for a cure!
