Kathy Coleman: Advancing cancer clinical trials at UH Seidman Cancer Center

“Les and I were so grateful for the care he received at Seidman Cancer Center and he enjoyed a greater quality of life through participating in the clinical trials program. My recent gift to UH honors Les’ lifelong commitment to advancing science and I am so excited to support the advancement of clinical trials, which will have a profound impact on patients today and for generations to come.”
