    Dr. Gregory Plotnikoff was the guest speaker at the 10th annual reception hosted by Helen Moss to benefit her eponymous Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
    Held at the Bratenahl home that Helen shares with her husband Richard Fleischman, the event was attended by about 100 guests who enjoyed music by pianist Joseph Iacobucci while dining on a light supper catered by Jeffrey Mills. Dr. Nathan Berger, former dean of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, introduced Helen who thanked PNC Bank and its regional president Paul Clark, for co-sponsoring Dr. Plotnikoff’s lecture the following day. His address to medical professionals will be on “Current Controversies in Vitamin D and Cancer,” Dr. Plotnikoff’s own seminal topic first published in 2003. Helen announced five Cleveland medical professionals, who as Foundation grant recipients, will attend this year’s conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology that will be held in Cleveland in 2011. Her Foundation, said Helen, continues its work to fund the endowment for the Professorship in Integrative Oncology at CWRU, only the second of its kind in the country (Memorial Sloan-Kettering has the first). 
    Dr. Stan Gerson, director of comprehensive cancer care at CWRU and University Hospitals, introduced Dr. Plotnikoff, who was graduated from Harvard Divinity School prior to medical school at the University of Minnesota.  Before assuming his position as the medical director of the Institute for Health and Healing at Abbott-Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis, Dr. Plotnikoff was an associate professor at Keio University School of Medicine in Tokyo where he was an apprentice in traditional Japanese herbal medicine. Dr. Plotnikoff said that he is “passionate about integrative oncology,” and said it is imperative to “provide the environment for the healing within. The fundamentals of balance, harmony and comfort can be achieved through acupuncture, massage therapy, mind-body connection and nutrition,” medical treatments at the heart of Japanese (Eastern) medicine.
