Cal Ripken, Jr. and Dr. Ronald Tutrone
Exosome Diagnostics, a Bio-Techne brand, has established a new partnership with Major League Baseball’s all-time “Iron Man,” Cal Ripken Jr. He is a 2007 Hall of Famer, 19-time All-Star, and two-time MVP. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cal’s record-setting 2,131st consecutive game, beating the previous record of 2,130 set by the legendary Lou Gehrig. Cal went on to play an additional 501 games before finishing his baseball career with 2,632 consecutive games, still the undefeated record.
Recently the 21-year Major League veteran revealed that earlier this year he was diagnosed with, and successfully treated for, prostate cancer. The ExoDx Prostate™ Test (EPI) played an important role in the management of Cal’s prostate cancer, and he would like to share his journey with you in this webinar.
