At ACIR, we are also doing our part while staying true to our mission of fighting cancer by sharing knowledge. Many of our readers are from hospital settings, normally working close to so many of those healthcare workers now valiantly fighting COVID-91 around the clock and protecting our communities. We are grateful for their dedication and want to give back.
With the generous support of one of our donors, we are donating meals to Off Their Plate. This organization, present in 9 cities, teams up with local restaurants to provide meals for healthcare workers. Every time one of our subscribers forwards our newsletter to a fellow researcher, we donate a meal. So far, in just 2 weeks, we provided 43 meals and have now extended our program until the end of May! Our newsletter not only supports scientists in their fight against cancer (still our number 1 priority) but now also supports our frontline healthcare workers and local economy. We hope to donate many more meals!
