A sold-out crowd of more than 320 supporters flooded Highland Park Country Club during the 18th Annual Myra Rubenstein Weis Health Resource Center Luncheon in early May, raising more than $75,000 for the Living in the Future (LIFE) Cancer Survivorship Program at NorthShore. Co-chaired by Linda Clark, Sheri Kase, Ruthie Greensphan, and Sue Masaracchia-Roberts, the luncheon was entitled “Memory Matters,” and was kicked off with a lively cocktail reception and silent auction. Beloved physician Bruce Brockstein, MD, Director of the Kellogg Cancer Centers at NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) was honored for his achievement in the field of oncology. The keynote address was delivered by James Mastrianni, MD, PhD, Director of The Center for Comprehensive Care & Research on Memory Disorders at the University of Chicago, who highlighted the latest research on memory disorders, and shared insight on ways to keep the mind young. foundation.northshore.org/mrw
