 UFT retiree Janet Stern (center) found “new research about the role white blood cells play in breast cancer very interesting.”

Dr. Larry Norton of Memorial Sloan Kettering comes to UFT headquarters in Manhattan every year to share the latest information in the medical treatment of breast cancer as part of the UFT Welfare Fund’s Medical Learning Series, a series of seminars open to all members. “I’ve been attending Dr. Norton’s updates for over 20 years and I go so that I can keep myself informed about the latest discoveries, cures and research,” said UFT retiree Janet Stern, one of nearly 50 participants at the workshop jointly held by the UFT Welfare Fund and SHARE support group. “Advances have come from all directions,” said Norton, who discussed the role white blood cells play in the disease, among other notable findings.
