For more than 15 years, Steve H. Kanzer has served as chairman and CEO of Accredited Ventures Inc., a New York City-based investment firm focused on life sciences. He was also the principal executive of Adeona Pharmaceuticals based out of Ann Harbor, MI. Alongside his work in investment banking, Steve Kanzer supports several academic and non-profit organizations, including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK).

In a recently released statement, MSK announced the launch of its new program MSK Direct, which will help more patients access high-quality health care following a cancer diagnosis. Through the program, MSK is collaborating with its employer partners to make it easier for their employees to get initial or follow-up care at the institution.

Employees whose companies participate in the free program have access to a team of experienced nurses, social workers, and care providers who will help them gather medical records, schedule doctor’s appointments, and coordinate other services related to their ongoing care. The team of professionals will work with the employees and their families throughout their experience at MSK to help ensure that they receive the support and medical services they need to regain their health.

Still in the early stages, MSK Direct is currently available through six of MSK’s employer partners, including CBS and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. To learn more about the program, visit www.mskcc.org.
