The BRIGHT Run has said a fond farewell to radiation oncologist and researcher Dr. Julie Arsenault, who has relocated to New Brunswick to be closer to family.

Dr. Arsenault became a member of the executive committee in 2014 after participating in her first BRIGHT Run.As a breast cancer specialist, she sees “tremendous value in quality research to help guide treatments and improve patient outcomes.”

She headed the teams committee, providinginformation and assistance to team captains when they needed it. Dr. Arsenault was also involved in several research projects supported by BRIGHT Run funds, including ARTEMIS, which is examining the feasibility of treating early-stage breast cancer without surgery. Hamilton’s loss is New Brunswick’s gain. Bon voyage, Julie.
