Affiliated Foot and Ankle Surgeons - Smilow Cancer Hospital Ride

Members of Affiliated Foot and Ankle Surgeons both sponsored and participated in the Closer to Free Ride,” a bike ride through New Haven that supports the cancer research at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven hospital.

From the Closer To Free Ride Homepage:

“Opened in 2009, Smilow Cancer Hospital treats more cancer patients than any other hospital in Connecticut. Within the state-of-the-art 14-story facility, the brightest minds in clinical research and patient care are developing new methods to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

Smilow Cancer Hospital’s revolutionary design is based on research which links architecture and environment as an essential partner in the healing process along with advanced medicine and care. Every facet of the hospital was designed with the patient experience in mind: natural lighting, soaring atriums, improved ventilation and single-patient rooms. Plus numerous open spaces, soft colors, a curated artwork program, a rooftop healing garden and the most caring, compassionate and professional staff in medicine today.”
