University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center sponsors Baltimore City Cancer Program “Where Hope is a Way of Life”. Their banner draped a table that displayed literature at Druid Hill Park during the Mothers Day Community Walk. It was Ernestine Shepherd's 11th consecutive walk to promote health and wellness. “The mission of the walks are to encourage individuals not to take off a health day”, said Chauncey Whitehead. According to Mr. Chauncey, “There is time everyday for health and wellness whether it be Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall”. Supporting and participating in the program this year was Dr. C Daniel Mullins, PhD. Dr. Mullins of the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus, explained a 5 years federally funded patient program. The program's focus is to gather data on what is important to the patient. Members of the program will be going into communities to gather information. “ We would like to know what is meaningful to patients. The program may help the University of Maryland gain trust from members of various communities. Maybe with data gathered from community members we may learn what we need to do in order to get people to pay more attention to their health. One of our goals are to get patients more engage in the research.”, said Dr. Mullins.
