Dana Farber Award Laura Kleiman CWR for Cancer SMALLLaura Kleiman, PhD, has no trouble seeking her professional passion. She pursues it everywhere – at work, at home, even in the car. Dana-Farber’s 2018 Community Service Award recipient, who will be honored at Thursday afternoon’s Martin Luther King celebration (see box), is focused on one goal: making eective cancer treatment available to as many people as possible.
