Laurence Heifetz, MD founded the Gene Upshaw Memorial Tahoe Forest Cancer Center in the rural town of Truckee, located in the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. Based in a rural part of California with previously no cancer center, with the use of telehealth technology, commitment, local participation and a partnership with University of California, Davis, the residents of this part of the beautiful and relatively isolated part of California now have access to not only high-quality cancer care but also direct opportunity to participate in global clinical trials with cutting-edge experimental therapies—literally these studies can save lives that a decade ago couldn’t be saved.
