Fox Chase Cancer Center Endowed Chairs

This appointment is a wonderful way to both recognize Dr. Weinberg's outstanding work at the Center over the last decade and support him as he continues to conduct crucial research. Because his research focuses heavily on prevention and screening, Dr. Weinberg is a natural choice for this chair, which Carol and Kenneth Weg named for their children to underscore its focus on benefitting future generations."
