by Medical Staff Office on December 16, 2013

Attracting 52 boats, 220 anglers and more than 500 total participants, the 6th Annual Fish for a Cure Tournament proved to be the most successful event to date, raising $220,000 to support cancer programs at AAMC. Cyrus Lashgari, MD, of Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, took first place catching a 37-inch rockfish. Dr. Lashgari was part of a crew of physicians who chartered a boat for the fishing and caught half dozen stripers. Several teams of physicians raised thousands on behalf of Fish for

the Cure, with Team DESPA coming in third place with $15,000.
