Director, Massey Cancer Center
Robert A. Winn, M.D., the Director of the VCU Massey Cancer Center and a member of the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society, will speak about the Center's ground-breaking work in both the development and the delivery of cancer treatment at our November Encorepreneur Breakfast. Dr. Winn will talk about the advances in cancer research as well as new approaches for delivering that treatment to everyone.
The Massey Cancer Center provides comprehensive, award-winning cancer care with a full range of medical and support services utilizing highest-quality treatments and advanced technologies. The Center conducts ground-breaking cancer research and leads Virginia in offering the largest selection of cancer clinical trials available to all Virginians through a statewide network.
The Center is comprised of nearly 150 scientists and clinical investigators and is one of just two NCI-designated cancer centers in Virginia. It was recently named to lead a $114 million initiative funded by the Bristol Myers Squibb Foundation and Gilead Sciences Inc. to increase diversity in clinical trials and improve health outcomes for minority residents.

We will be meeting in the auditorium of the Sarah Dooley Center For Autism on the campus of St. Joseph's Villa. The Center is a school dedicated to serving children ages 5 to 22 diagnosed with autism and other related developmental disabilities.
Located on a beautifully manicured 84-acre campus near the intersection of I-95N and Parham Road in Richmond's northside, St. Joseph’s Villa is the longest continuously operating children’s nonprofit organization in the country. It was founded in 1834 by the Daughters of Charity, a religious group of women called upon to care for Richmond’s orphaned and impoverished children.
