Earlier this month Dr. Obi was the special guest of Dr. John Murray who chaired the Third Annual Breast Cancer Symposium sponsored by Susan G. Komen and University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria. During Dr. Obi’s three day visit he attended dozens of functions and lectures by world famous breast cancer physicians and experts. The symposium was originally organized by Dr. Murray who is a plastic surgeon that has worked with the Komen Center and the Illinois College of Medicine for the past seven years. For the past three years Drs. Lewis Obi and John Murray have been actively collaborating in an effort to bring the Peoria model of comprehensive breast cancer care to Jacksonville. Linda Maricle, Executive Director of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, assured Drs. Obi and Murray that her organization would support their efforts on behalf of breast cancer patients in Jacksonville.
