ALBANY, N.Y. (October 14, 2020) - Last night on October 13, 2020, the University at Albany School of Public Health was thrilled to welcome Dr. Otis Brawley virtually to campus to give the 10th Annual Hogarty Lecture, made possible thanks to the support of Dan and Ellen Hogarty and their daughter Sheila Mendelson. This year's topic was cancer control in the 21st century with an emphasis on health disparities.
