Our first term kicked off with the “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”, held to raise funds in support of MacMillan Cancer Care. The event was a success, raising approximately £190, 75% more than last year’s inaugural bake sale. Our subcommittee got together to bake a number of cakes and to tend the store, and this served as a good team building activity.
The flagship event this term has been our talk entitled “Immunotherapy: A Shining Beacon in the War Against Cancer”. We had the pleasure of hearing from Dr Sergio Quezada, one of the leading authorities on immunotherapy at the UCL Cancer Institute. This fascinating talk saw a turnout of about 70, a testament to the significance and promise of immunotherapy for cancer.
It’s been a great term! All of us in the Oncology division look forward to seeing you at our future events.
