Episode 15

Full Speed Ahead: A Journey to End Cancer for All Species

One day, a cure for cancer will be discovered—but for Dr. Michelle Harcha, “one day” isn’t soon enough. Since childhood, she’s been fiercely determined to do everything her power to make that goal a reality. One way she supports the cause is by participating in the annual Pelotonia cycling event. In this episode, we sit down with Dr. Harcha to learn more about the fundraiser, why it’s so important to her, and how we can join her in the race to end cancer.

In part two, we continue the Meet the Board segment with District 4 Representative Dr. Jamie Pursell.

Finally, get a sneak peek of the July/August issue of the OVMA Observer, available for download now in the Members Only Center.
