SCMG Doctors Raise Awareness for Brain Cancer Research
On Saturday, May 12, 2018, more than 700 participants came together at the Waterfront Park and raised over $79,000 for the annual San Diego Brain Tumor Walk. Sharp HealthCare’s Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute and Neuro-Oncology Center was this year’s flagship sponsor.
Sharp Community Medical Group (SCMG) physicians – Siavash Jabbari, MD, Radiation Oncology and Charles Redfern, MD, Oncology – were involved to help support the cause. Both Drs. Jabbari and Redfern helped promote awareness and the importance of brain cancer research prior to the event through local radio interviews and were key speakers on the day of the event.
According to the National Brain Tumor Society, the organization that hosted the event, the annual walk raises awareness and much-needed resources to fund critical brain tumor-specific programs to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors.
