Pennies for Patients Student Tours


Every year since 2006 the CLL Experimental Therapuetics Research lab has invited the top fundraising schools from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patient campaign for a tour of the labratory. Pennies for Patients encourage schools to learn about leukemias and lymphomas while competing to raise the most money for the LLS. The field trip tour engages students in scientific inquiries and introduces them to techniques used to study cancer. These tours are as much fun for the lab members as they are for the students. These tours allow our lab to express their appreciation for the children’s effort as well as introduce them to the world of cancer research.  To find out more about the Leukemia and Lymphom Society's Pennies for Patients funraiser, please visit their School and Youth Programs website (www.schoolandyouth.org)
