Elegant Evening at Eilan Hotel

On Saturday, March 22, 2014, we honored Dr. Vivian Bucay, Mr. Henry Cisneros, and Ms. Leslie Mouton, three San Antonions who have used their experiences as patients to educate and advocate for others requiring similar care.

These three honorees exemplify the empowered patients that The Patient Institute endeavors to create.

The event was held at the exquisite Eilan Hotel and featured a wine reception, fine dining, a tribute to the late Howard A. Britton, M.D., Patient Institute Advisory Board member and previous honoree, and moving remarks by the honorees.  Leslie Mouton told of her battle with breast cancer and of her going public with the disease.  Vivian Bucay, a dermatologist, spoke of overcoming her Stage Four Melanoma, both as a physician and a patient.  Henry Cisneros shared his experience with prostate cancer and educating men about the importance of  screening and treatment options.
