AACR to present distinguished public service awards at 2007 Annual Meeting

PHILADELPHIA -- The American Association for Cancer Research will honor Andrew C. Von Eschenbach, M.D., Harold P. Freeman, M.D., and LaSalle D. Leffall, Jr., M.D., for their outstanding efforts in leadership, education and advocacy with two awards at the AACR Annual Meeting 2007.
