Shawn Barton (G2) ran the New York City Marathon for the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, whose mission is changing lives by creating a community of support for young adults, and their loved ones, as they fight cancer and embrace survivorship. He raised over $3000 which goes directly to funding their Cancer to 5k program, a 12-week training program designed to introduce or reintroduce cancer survivors to physical activity. This year's marathon had the most finishers of any marathon ever! Over 51,000 runners finished this year. 



Jennifer Watchmaker (G3) was awarded the Trainee Research Prize by the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) for her research project titled "Detection of Elevated Whole-Brain Oxygen Extraction Fraction (OEF) in Patients with Intracranial Stenosis using Non-Invasive MRI." Congratulations Jenny!
