At Making Strides Against Breast Cancer ASA College Family Represents
ASA Faculty, Staff, and Provost Dr. Shanthi Konkoth represented ASA at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event hosted by the American Cancer Society in Central Park on Sunday, October 17th. Hundreds of participants returned to the event after a year hiatus due to Covid-19. It was an uplifting experience for all who walked, ran, and supported.
