Event Details

The July 6 “Exploring Ethics” forum, “Navigating Cancer Treatment in the New Era of Personalized Medicine,” was cancelled due to a power outage that forced the closure of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center.  Our guest speaker, Dr. Laura Shawver of The Clearity Foundation, has agreed to reschedule her presentation Tuesday, July 19.

You can RSVP at: Navigating Cancer Treatment


Overview: 

Biomedical researchers who are diagnosed with the illnesses they study enter a Twilight Zone of fractured identity.  In the surreal shift from “disease expert” to “disease patient,” scientists often learn life-altering lessons about therapeutic dilemmas and personal powerlessness.


Laura Shawver has taken that journey, and she is using the lessons learned to help other patients navigate treatment options.  A cancer researcher and biotech executive who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Shawver discovered that her professional standing gave her unusual access to sophisticated diagnostic tools that boosted chances of survival.  She believes that all cancer patients deserve similar access, and that moral principle has led her to establish The Clearity Foundation.
