As many of you know I am blessed to have two amazing young women working with me this year as my chief residents. Courtney Burnett has fulfilled all the duties of her job this year flawlessly while battling brain cancer in the background. Courtney never skips a beat, teaching our residents and students, attending on the wards, and planning her future career as a primary care internist as my future partner.
I am so excited to participate in the 2021 virtual MN Brain Tumor 5K! Money raised from this event will be used for brain tumor research.
Today nearly 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and more than 69,000 others will be diagnosed this year. Brain tumors are often deadly, impact quality of life, and change everything for patients and their loved ones.
Please help by sponsoring me today as we work to find a cure for Courtney and all others afflicted with this terrible disease.
