We look forward to welcoming these incredible physicians to Chicago for the 2019 Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Symposium.

Since 2009, CSCI has partnered with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University on the Chicago Sister Cities International Medical Initiative.

Through a generous grant from the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation, in conjunction with the Robert H.
