NUHS Interns at FabFest 2012
National University interns volunteered at Bright Pink organization’s FabFest 2012 on Sunday, April 15th at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Chicago. Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women while providing support for high-risk individuals.
FabFest raised funds for Bright Pink, and featured a day of pampering for all who attended. NUHS interns offered stretching and chiropractic care. There were also make-up artists from Saks 5th Avenue, hair stylists from Mario Tricoci, nail technicians, massage therapists, spray tanners, workshops and fitness sessions.
A highlight of the event was an appearance by Ms. Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill, from the Style network’s reality show, “Giuliana & Bill.” Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer several months ago, and shared her story of undergoing a double mastectomy.
Overall, the event raised $240,000 for breast and ovarian cancer prevention.
NUHS interns participating included: Craig Oswald, Joanna Reaves, Nick Reynolds, Qani Rushani, Patrick Van Nordstran, Natalie Martinez, and Brittany Rhonehouse. The interns were joined by NUHS Whole Health Center – Chicago clinician, Dr. Stephanie Fall.
