Members from the Sengupta lab participated in the Winship 5k race to raise funds to support cancer research at Winship Cancer Institute. The lab members joined the team "To Kale with Brain Cancer" in honor of Ms. Beth Jordan. Beth was an incredible person and advocate for brain cancer research. We were fortunate to have gotten to know Beth and her family. Pictured (left to right) Alex, Laura, and Erin.
Dr. Sengupta led a group that included Winship researchers and a patient to teach students at Cliff Valley School Atlanta about brain cancer, neurosurgical practices, brain structure, and the experiences of being a brain cancer patient. All who participated in the outreach, students and presenters, were greatly impacted by the experience.
Dr. Sengupta participated in a Q&A at the Horizon Theatre Company following the performance of Constellations which portrays a character with a brain tumor. Dr. Sengupta, pictured here with the actors from the play, had advised the director and actors on how best to portray someone with a brain tumor.
Dr. Sengupta met with group from the Broadway play, Constellations, in 2016. The play's main character is a patient with glioblastoma. Dr. Sengupta provided clinical direction for the play's artistic director.
