NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTSZeit Fellows Honor MCW-Green Bay StudentThe Walter Zeit Fellowship, a donorsociety with more than 1,300 members, has generously supportednumerous programs at MCW for more thanthree decades. More than 100 members ofthe fellowship gathered on October 11, 2019,for the 38th Annual Walter Zeit FellowshipRecognition Dinner.At the Dinner, the fellowship presentedthe Walter Zeit Leadership Award to Erin M.Glembocki, a third-year medical student atMCW-Green Bay who hails from Cedarburg,Wis. She has served as co-president of theFamily Medicine Student Association andpresident of the Christian Medical Association, and helped organize trips to theAmerican Academy of Family PhysiciansStudent and Resident Conference. Glembocki also helped coordinate mock interviews for residency programs and arrangedfor local physicians to serve as guestspeakers on campus.She also has helped enhance scienceeducation within the community andraise interest in health and sciencecareers among primary school students.Glembocki is the first MCW-Green Baystudent to receive the Zeit award.Walter Zeit, PhD ’39, left a farreaching legacy during his career at MCWthat spanned almost 60 years and includedthe teaching of more than 4,500 medical students. Dr. Zeit matriculated at theMarquette University School of Medicine(MCW’s predecessor) in 1920 and joined theanatomy department as a student assistant in 1921. After Dr. Zeit retired, the lateDerward Lepley, Jr., MD ’49, formed theWalter Zeit Fellowship in 1980 to promoteand support MCW and honor Dr. Zeit for hiscontributions. MCW Garners 4 Million in Grants toStudy Chronic Pain & Opioid AddictionThe Medical College of Wisconsin receivedmore than 4 million from the NationalInstitutes of Health (NIH) for researchprojects focused on improving treatmentsfor chronic pain, curbing the rates of opioiduse disorder and achieving more long-termrecoveries from opioid addiction.Amanda Brandow, DO, MS ’08, associateprofessor of pediatrics (hematology/oncology/bone marrow transplantation), and JuliePanepinto, MD, MSPH, professor of pediatrics(hematology/oncology/bone marrow transplantation), have been awarded a 2.6 milliongrant to investigate a potential biomarker forpain caused by sickle cell disease.Carol Everson, PhD, professor of medicine(endocrinology and molecular medicine);Christopher Olsen, PhD, associate professor ofpharmacology & toxicology; and Hershel Raff,PhD, professor of medicine (endocrinologyand molecular medicine), were awarded 1.5million to study sleep disruption as a majorrisk factor for relapse during opioid addictiontreatment.These awards are part of the NIH’s Helpingto End Addiction Long-term (HEAL) Initiative, which launched in April 2018 and spansa dozen NIH institutes and centers that haveinvested nearly 1.8 billion in addiction andpain science during the last two fiscal years.The HEAL Initiative’s goal is to improve prevention and treatment strategies for opioidmisuse and addiction – including by accelerating research into pain management alternatives to opioids.Cheryl Stucky, PhD, Marvin Wagner Professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy,serves as an advisor to the HEAL Initiative.

Dr. Davis and histeam have incorporated Stop the Bleedtraining into MCW’s first- and third-yearmedical school curriculum. Beginning in2018, all first-year medical students attended a 90-minute Stop the Bleed courseas part of their medical school orientation.At its conclusion, 99 percent of the morethan 200 students indicated that theywere either very comfortable or extremelycomfortable with the basics of hemorrhagecontrol.By imparting these skills early into thefirst-year medical school curriculum, theprogram is empowering future healthcareleaders to sustain the momentum and paythat knowledge forward across the state.These combined efforts have led topromising results. Since 2018, MCWpersonnel have trained more than 3,000

ABCindividuals locally and across the state. Thisis in addition to the countless other localprograms led by fire departments, policedepartments and community hospitalsthroughout Wisconsin. Program leaders seethis as only a starting point, however.With this early success, there is hopethat the program will continue to flourishand increase its footprint across the state.To this end, MCW hopes to find fundingopportunities that will allow the programto expand. When the program was officially endorsed by the state of Wisconsin in2018, it was not accompanied by funding.All the training to date has come from thevoluntary efforts of those in the healthprofessions.“Funding the program will enable theinitiative to have a program coordinatorand allow us to teach these skills across thestate on a larger scale,” says Dr. de Moya.Dr. Davis also sees the future of Stop theBleed as a complimentary program to thosethat address the root causes of intentionalviolence.“My brain is always geared toward theactual reason why we’re here as traumasurgeons and why the Stop the Bleedprogram is needed,” notes Dr. Davis.“Many of these violent events where bleeding injuries occur stem from longstandinghistorical and socioeconomic divides thatput populations more at risk for theseepisodes.”Several of the programs recentlylaunched by MCW seek to address the underlying causes of violence. These initiativesinclude 414Life, a program that aims toPut pressureon the wound.Place cloth or gauzeinsidethe wound.

But it is only part of thesolution.“I think providing people with the skillsto stop the bleed is a vital first step,” Dr.Davis adds. “Our ultimate goal, however,is to be a leading force in the state to helpprevent the bleed rather than treat thesymptoms.” – ALEX KROUSEMCW.EDU7

CLINICAL DISCOVERY PHILANTHROPYLeading the Next Frontierof Pediatric Cancer ResearchMACC Fund Commits 25 Million to MCW and Children’s Wisconsinto Fight Pediatric Cancer and Blood DisordersImagine a world where a child diagnosed with pediatric leukemia has a five-year survival rate of only 33 percent – a verygrim statistic indeed. That was our world a little more thanfour decades ago. But today, thanks to advancements in clinicalcare and accelerated medical discovery supported by philanthropy, that child survives almost 85 percent of the time.Since 1976, physicians and scientists at MCW have been atthe forefront of this lifesaving success story, fueled by morethan 46 million gifted by the Midwest Athletes AgainstChildhood Cancer (MACC) Fund. MCW and its clinical partner,Children’s Wisconsin (Children’s), have benefited greatly fromJon McGlocklin, co-founder of the MACC Fund, reiterates the shared goal of a worldfree of pediatric cancer spurred by cutting-edge medical discovery and clinical careadvancements that will improve survival rates and quality of life for kids diagnosedwith cancer or a blood disorder.8MEDICAL COLLEGE OF WISCONSIN MAGAZINEthis philanthropy through collaborative research discoveries,innovative treatments and state-of-the-art patient care.

CLINICAL DISCOVERY PHILANTHROPYUnity MR-Linac OffersPersonalized Radiation TherapyStudies estimate that some 50 percent of cancer patients will receiveradiation therapy during treatment. Normally, this is a multiple-stepprocess involving separate appointmentsfor tumor imaging via CT and MRI inbetween radiation treatments deliveredvia a medical linear accelerator. Butnew technology is working to improve thisprocess, and MCW faculty have been amongthe first in the world to implement it.Radiation oncologists at the Froedtert& MCW Clinical Cancer Center (CCC) atFroedtert Hospital treated their firstpatient using the Elekta Unity MR-Linactechnology in early 2019, shortly afterthe technology received FDA approval.Unity MR-Linac is the world’s firstradiation therapy technology to combinea high-field strength MRI scanner witha linear accelerator in a single system.Previously, experts thought it would benearly impossible to combine MRI andlinear accelerator devices because thepowerful MRI magnets could interferewith radiation beams.The Froedtert & MCW team is part ofthe MR-Linac Consortium, which hasbrought together global thought leadersto investigate what could be addressedthrough the integration of these twotechnologies. With philanthropic supportfrom private donations like the Michael& Jeanne Schmitz MR-LINAC ResearchFund in Honor of J. Frank Wilson, MD,the CCC became only the fifth site inthe world to install Unity MR-Linac.Christopher J. Schultz, MD ’85, Bernardand Miriam Peck Family Professor andchair of MCW’s department of radiationoncology, already is seeing its greatpromise.“Unity MR-Linac offers the potentialto fundamentally transform how radiation therapy regimens are developed,implemented and adapted to achieveoptimal outcomes for our patients,” hesays. “With the ability to image tumortissue more clearly, we can adapt theradiation dose while a patient is beingtreated. It allows us to tailor therapy ina much more precise way for individualswith many different types of tumors.”For patients, even a simple benefit – convenience – can make a hugedifference. Mary Hollis was diagnosedwith pancreatic cancer in 2016 andunderwent surgery, chemotherapy andradiation. But then a follow-up scanfound a tumor in a lymph node that washard to spot deep within her organs. Herradiation oncologist, William Hall, MD,an MCW associate professor, suggestedusing Unity MR-Linac for this round oftreatment.“It was more convenient because itwas all in one,” Hollis notes. “OtherwiseI would have to go for scans first andthen go separately for radiation. It wasso much easier.”Dr. Hall is one of four principal investigators leading an international database for evaluating different ways to useUnity MR-Linac over the next five yearsand has strong hopes for the technology.“The goal of the study is to understandhow patients do when treated withthis device and to understand how topotentially improve their outcomes,” heexplains. “My hope is that the combination of these two tools into one devicewill truly enable personalized radiationtherapy.” – KARRI STOCKA team of radiation therapists helps apatient get comfortable and properlypositioned on Unity MR-Linac.Photo courtesy of Michael Sears/ Milwaukee Journal SentinelMCW.EDU9
