In addition to his studies, Sherif El-Refai works to develop new treatments for lung cancer in his role as an oncology pharmacist at the University of Kentucky’s Markey Cancer Center.

Recently, the Markey Cancer Center held its Expressions of Courage event, which brought together hundreds of individuals for an afternoon celebrating National Cancer Survivorship Month. The event, which took place in the center’s courtyard on Friday, June 5, 2015, featured an exhibit showcasing artwork created by cancer patients and survivors as well as their friends and family members.

In addition to a visual art exhibition, the afternoon’s festivities included literary readings, dance and musical performances, and a short speech from Dr. Mark Evers, the Markey Cancer Center’s director. Those who missed the Expressions of Courage event still have the opportunity to view the participant’s visual art displays in the Combs Atrium Building of the Markey Center.
