Volunteer Spotlight – RIS Editors: Raúl Zavaleta and Julieann Selden

With this issue of the RIS Update, we officially welcome Julieann Selden as the editor of the RIS electronic newsletter and express our deep appreciation to Raúl Zavaleta who has edited this publication for the last three and one-half years.

Raúl Zavaleta

Raúl, our editor from afar


Raúl, who lives in San Francisco, works for Intuitive Surgical as a project manager. While studying marketing and international affairs at the University of Texas, he lost an aunt to breast cancer. After this loss, he wanted to make a difference for cancer patients and served as an intern with the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

After he moved to San Francisco, Raúl continued to want to make that difference and volunteering remotely as editor of the RIS electronic newspaper allowed him to do that. He has now decided to pursue a graduate degree in public health which will continue to give him new opportunities to help others. He says “Rein in Sarcoma has given me a fantastic opportunity to educate and inform people about sarcoma cancers and in so doing empower them to better deal with the disease.”
