The inaugural Ginny L. Clements Breast Cancer Research Institute Symposium hosted eight leading experts in the field of breast cancer research on May 5, hailing from all over the country including Yale Cancer Center; MD Anderson Cancer Center; University of California, San Diego; the Mayo Clinic; and the University of Arizona Cancer Center. The event was open to the public and was followed with a reception to celebrate the giving spirit of donors in helping to establish the institute. A gift of $8.5 million in 2020 by Ginny L. Clements made the establishment of the institute possible.
University of Arizona Cancer Center Director, Dr. Joann Sweasy, said that establishing an annual event encourages collaboration between researchers in the fight against breast cancer. Breast cancer survivor and philanthropist, Ginny L. Clements, said that establishing an annual symposium was something important to her in terms of researchers sharing emerging knowledge and discoveries that are leading the way to the treatments of tomorrow.
