Northwestern Mutual - San Diego Presents Rady Children's Hospital Researcher with $100,000 Grant for Pediatric Cancer Research

Northwestern Mutual – San Diego presented a $100,000 check to Rady Children's Hospital researcher, Dr. Paula Aristizabal, for two-year funding of pediatric cancer research. Dr. Aristizabal is exploring the cancer disparities among minorities, focusing primarily on Hispanic children and lack of opportunity to participate in trial research.

The grant is being awarded through Northwestern Mutual’s Childhood Cancer program with nonprofit partner Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. To date, Northwestern Mutual and its network nationwide have raised more than $10 million for the cause and helped to fund more than 105,000 hours of research to help discover life-saving treatments for children affected by the disease

This multi-year commitment harnesses the passion of thousands of Northwestern Mutual's field force members, including their families, friends and clients to provide help for today and hope for tomorrow to children and families battling this disease.
