If you drove down Hwy 933 between the Inn at St. Mary's and Beacon Memorial Hospital on Thursday, April 29, you may have spotted some workers in bright yellow vests. Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) members were busy picking up trash, hundreds of cigarette butts, and even the odd golf ball (5 to be exact). Shout out to Professor Katherine White’s lab who turned out in force to make quick work of the cleanup!  In partnership with the Adopt-a-Highway program, HCRI cleans this stretch of roadway four times per year.  If you are interested in volunteering to help keep our community clean, please contact Aviva Wulfsohn ( for information on the next pickup date.
