Professor D’Innocenzo received the American Historical Association Eugene Asher National Distinguished Teaching Award in 2009.  During 57 years at Hofstra University, D’Innocenzo served as both a Professor of History and The Harry H.

He has degrees from Columbia University (where he was a Danforth Scholar and an Edward John Noble Leadership Fellow) and from Union College (where he was recognized with the Freling Smith Prize for outstanding history thesis, and received the Bailey Prize for outstanding senior service).

Working closely with the Kettering Foundation, the National Issues Forums Institute, and the Public Agenda Foundation, Hofstra’s programs have involved more than 50,000 people over that time span, mostly high school students and teachers, but also increasingly reaching into the community to sponsor intergenerational programs. In 2013, Mike was appointed to the Advisory Board of the National Issues Forums Institute.

KANTI RAI, MD is currently the Joel Finkelstein Cancer Foundation Professor of Medicine and Professor of Molecular Medicine at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine; Medical Director of the Hematology Lab, LIJ Hem-Onc Outpatient in New Hyde Park; and Medical Director of the Hematology Lab, CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) Research and Treatment Program in New Hyde Park. He is an international leader in the clinical evaluation and management of patients with CLL and his research in the field of CLL has pioneered contemporary approaches to this disease. Dr. Rai has been involved in diagnosing and treating CLL for 40 years and his publication of the “Rai” prognostic categorization of CLL in Blood in 1975 was a seminal paper incorporating basic clinical findings into a powerful prognostic schema that continues to be used by physicians and clinical investigators today. Through a longtime collaboration with Nicholas Chiorazzi, MD, and other CLL scientists at the Feinstein Institute, Dr. Rai and colleagues helped to establish the importance of fludarabine, now a standard-of-care treatment for CLL, and demonstrated the effectiveness of cladribine in treating hairy cell leukemia. Dr. Rai has published more than 200 original papers and book chapters. 

A Q&A and refreshments will follow the lecture. Admission is free.
