Two Good Things for Thursday

Author: Lisa Vaccarelli, C’02, GED’10

It’s not every day that that you get to make a declarative statement like this. And it’s even more rare that this statement – or one of similar magnitude – is taken straight from a celebrity blog. But thanks to Elizabeth Banks, C’96, Emmy-nominated television and film actress, the University of Pennsylvania has TWO things to be proud of today: not only are the researchers at this fine institution making giant advances in the realm of cancer treatment, but we can also claim as our own an alumna who has not eschewed her connection to the University – or to issues and topics that truly matter – in her rise to stardom. Kudos to you, Elizabeth.

You can read Elizabeth’s blog post here and, for more information about the Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center, visit their website.
