TMA LEADERS LAND CANCER BOARD APPOINTMENTS
Mark Chassay, MD, of Austin, and Leo Cigarroa, MD, of Laredo were named to the Scientific and Prevention Advisory Council of the state’s new Cancer Prevention and Research Institute. The council’s recommendations for action go to the institute’s oversight board, which is responsible for managing the $3 billion in cancer research and prevention bonds voters approved in 2007. Austin oncologist Joe Bailes, MD, is a member of the oversight board, which narrowed its search for an executive director for the institute to two finalists.
