Good Morning:

One of the great things about working at a university is the access you have to experts in almost every imaginable field. Next week we will have an extraordinary opportunity to listen to and ask questions of four national experts on cancer prevention.

Cancer is a frightening prospect that, unfortunately, has impacted all of our lives either directly or through the struggle of a loved one. We can take hope, however, in the promising work of researchers and in the fact that almost 200,000 of the approximately 564,000 cancer deaths each year are preventable.

That is why I am asking you, your families and loved ones to join me at this year’s Tulane University Presidential Symposium, “Fight for Your Life: Cancer Prevention in the Real World,” Nov. 11 from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Freeman Auditorium of the Woldenberg Art Center.

To learn more about the symposium and the outstanding speakers we have lined up please visit

Have a great weekend,


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
