Women & Philanthropy: OSU STEAM Factory

September 11, 2018

On Tuesday, September 11, Women for Ohio State gathered at Waterman Labs to learn how hope is growing for cancer survivors under the leadership of Dr. Colleen Spees. We learned from Dr. Spees about the direct connections between dietary behaviors and cancer outcomes, and the work the Garden of Hope is doing for cancer survivors to promote nutritious habits by giving them access to freshly grown fruits and vegetables that are rich in cancer-fighting properties. Between the crisp fall weather, fresh apple cider, perfectly decked-out barn and delicious cooking demonstrations, we had the perfect backdrop to explore university and community collaborations that support cancer survivors, as well as the impact the garden has had on participants of the program – children, caregivers, and adults alike.
