NYU Langone Medical Center’s Perlmutter Cancer Center Gala

WHAT: The Perlmutter Cancer Center Gala celebrates the dedication of the physicians, scientists, nurses, and medical staff at NYU Langone’s Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center. Each year, funds raised at the Gala support the center’s continued excellence in patient care, research, education, and prevention.

In addition to the flagship Manhattan location, Perlmutter Cancer Center has numerous sites throughout New York City and Long Island. Services vary by location but may include infusion treatment, radiation therapy, doctor’s offices, imaging, and our integrative health program.

WHO: This year, the Gala will honor H. Leon Pachter, MD, the George David Stewart Professor of Surgery and chair of the Department of Surgery at NYU Langone. While instrumental in the fight against many forms of cancer, his specialty, pancreatic cancer, involves confronting one of the disease’s most devastating forms. Dr. Pachter has dedicated his life to the well-being of his many patients, the diversification of this subspecialty field, the advancement of surgery through research, and the tutelage of his students. His exceptional knowledge, expertise and leadership in the field have made a national impact in the fight against this deadly disease.

NYU Langone trustee Lori Fink, chair of the Perlmutter Cancer Center Advisory Board, will co-chair the event.
