More than 270 guests attended the inaugural Perlmutter Cancer Center—Live from Brooklyn, an event celebrating the soon-to-open Perlmutter Cancer Center—Sunset Park and accomplishments in cancer research, education, prevention, and care at NYU Langone Health, on April 15, 2019.
NYU Langone raised nearly $1.7 million to fund transportation to and from treatment at the new center in Sunset Park and supportive programs for people with cancer in Brooklyn, as well as other cancer support initiatives.
“Over the past several years, Perlmutter Cancer Center has renewed and expanded its commitment to advancing cancer care and increasing our service all across New York City,” says Benjamin G. Neel, MD, PhD, director of Perlmutter Cancer Center. “Brooklynites deserve to get top-tier care without leaving the borough, and NYU Langone Health and Perlmutter Cancer Center are deeply committed to making that happen.”
