LARRY HEIFETZ, MD, FACP

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.
