Upcoming Events


Many thanks to our phenomenal panelists for a fascinating and participatory program on Treatment beyond the Tumor on October 30th, at Alston & Bird, moderated by JALBCA Board member Linda Capitti. Susan Glaser of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center discussed the role of counseling for breast cancer patients. Then Donna Wilson, also from MSKCC, got everyone in the packed house on their feet to experience the benefits of exercise to our physical and mental well-being. Joanne Loewy, Director of the Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine Mount Sinai Beth Israel, explained how music therapy tailored to each patient can improve outcomes for cancer patients, and Christopher Pizzute of the Louis Armstrong Center closed the program by demonstrating the power of music therapy with his guitar. Thanks, too, to JALBCA’s co-sponsor, the New York Women’s Bar Association, and all the attendees.
