    California Winemaker Leads Campaign to Support Prostate Cancer Research
    Robert Hollander describes himself as a wine-loving physician living with advanced prostate cancer. He first started making wine in 2007 as a passion project that reflected his longstanding interest in wine. After receiving a devastating cancer diagnosis in 2009, this passion turned to purpose.

    Dr. Hollander’s 2RedWinery crafts small-volume wines with all proceeds from sales supporting prostate cancer research at top medical centers and NCI-designated cancer centers around the country. This year, he is partnering with Fox Chase Cancer Center in his fundraising efforts.

    His award-winning Zinpiphany© Zinfandel and Rhone-styled #2red have garnered accolades at multiple events, including the San Francisco International Wine Competition, American Fine Wine Competition, and NY World Wine & Spirits Competition. Supporters of his campaign can purchase these wines while supporting Fox Chase through the Robert and Susan Hollander Foundation.

    To learn more about Hollander’s story and his wines, and to make a purchase, go to his Indiegogo site. Questions about this campaign? Please contact Joe Maiellano in Fox Chase’s office of institutional advancement via email or by calling 215-728-2717.

The talk will take place at noon in the Reimann Auditorium at Fox Chase.

    Dwight Kloth, PharmD, FCCP, BCOP, director of pharmacy at Fox Chase Cancer Center, will focus the discussion on writing clear and precise medication orders, describing the methods Fox Chase uses to prevent fatal drug administration errors, comparing medications on The Joint Commission look alike/sound alike drug list, describing safety measures in place at Fox Chase as plans are underway toward implementation of computerized physician order entry, and describing examples from the medication safety literature in which electronic health records have caused patient harm rather than increasing safety margins.
