Blue Cure Foundation hosts the Fred and Mabel R. Parks Inaugural Lectureship and
Luncheon with Guest Speaker Dr. Margaret I. Cuomo
Dr. Rod Paige will receive the first ever Blue Cure Foundation Award for his service. Paige began his career as a classroom teacher, advancing to become Houston Independent School District superintendent and serving as the 7th United States Secretary of Education.
Dr. Margaret I. Cuomo will be the featured speaker. Dr. Cuomo, the author of A World Without Cancer, will provide a look at how profit, personalities and politics obstruct real progress toward prevention, cure of the disease and what individuals can do to live a cancer-free life.
The inaugural event coincides with September's Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Mayor Anise Parker will issue a proclamation to the Blue Cure Foundation for its empowering anti-cancer message of prevention. Several of Houston's downtown buildings will go blue, including the Hotel ZaZa.
Blue Cure is the blue side of the women's pink breast cancer movement.
