The program will be at Diamante Country Club, 2000 Country Club Drive. Featured speaker will be Samantha Kendrick, Ph.D., assistant professor in the UAMS College of Medicine Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Kendrick’s research focuses on developing new therapies for aggressive forms of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that have the potential to reduce drug resistance and lead to better patient outcomes.

Kendrick was co-recipient of the UAMS Cancer Institute’s 2019 Seeds of Science grant award, which totaled $50,000 and was funded by proceeds from the Village Walk for Cancer Research. Since 2002, the walk has raised about $500,000 for research programs at the UAMS Cancer Institute. The 2019 walk is scheduled for Sept. 28 at Balboa Pavilion in Hot Springs Village.
This event is presented by the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute in conjunction with the Hot Springs Village Walk for Cancer Research. It is sponsored by the Envoys, an advocacy group of the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute Foundation.
