The Hirshberg Foundation is pleased to announce that Judy Fortin will moderate the uplifting and unique panel discussion portion of the 16th Annual Symposium on Pancreatic Cancer.
We are honored, each year, to share the stories of pancreatic cancer patients and caregivers. These honest and personal discussions give us all perspective, insight and sensitivity to the journey of both patients and loved ones once someone in the family is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
A veteran former broadcast journalist, Judy Fortin is Executive Director of Communications for UCLA Health and the David Geffen School of Medicine in Los Angeles, California. She leads a team that is responsible for all media relations and reputation management at one of the top health systems in the United States.
Prior to joining UCLA in 2019, Judy served as Senior Director of Communications at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. Previously, she was National Director of Media Relations for the American Cancer Society. She spent 19 years as an anchor and correspondent at CNN and CNN Headline News in Atlanta. She won multiple national awards for her work as a CNN Medical Correspondent. Previously, she was a reporter for WCVB-TV in Boston and WMUR-TV in Manchester, New Hampshire.
