Friends of the Cancer Center were joined by William W. Li, M.D., of the Angiogenesis Foundation in Cambridge, Massachusetts.Dr. Li shared his thoughts about angiogenesis, abnormal blood vessel growth, and the theory that dietary choices can minimize one’s risk of cancer. Honorary Chair Carla Markell introduced the speaker, and Li’s remarks were followed by a reception.
