The Sixth Annual Agi Hirshberg Symposium was a great success!  Our meeting was part of the UCLA Collaborative Centers in Integrative Medicine Week and our program began the week. Dr. Stephen Pandol and Dr. Murray Korc participated in this year's program focusing on new strategies in targeted therapy for pancreatic cancer. Invited speakers included current and previous awardees of the Foundation Seed/Pilot Grant Program.  Based on the feedback we have received, in regards to meeting topics and attendance, it was the best Symposium to date!
