Mount Sinai welcomed a group from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government for a tour of the Dubin Breast Center of the Tisch Cancer Institute as part of a “leadership field trip” to New York City. The visit was an important one for the graduate students, many of whom plan health-related careers in nonprofits and governments around the globe. Other stops included City Hall, The Harlem Children’s Zone, and the Robin Hood Foundation.

Founder Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin and Center co-Director Dr. George Raptis discussed the genesis of the Dubin Breast Center, the services that will be available to patients, and the underlying commitment to holistic care that has driven the Center’s design. Students’ questions focused on this philosophy because of its departure from the more typical “siloed” healthcare available in the U.S. and other developed countries. Dr. Raptis also described the Center’s emphasis on research and clinical trials, another factor that will make the Dubin Breast Center a haven for cancer patients and their families.
