The proceeds from this year’s LYCEUM benefits a new Comprehensive Cancer Care Center on the campus of Bethesda North Hospital. The Cancer Center will provide a superior patient experience through access to sub-specialized, integrated cancer services located in the same building. This project will strengthen Bethesda North's reputation and serve as a beacon for cancer care across the tri-state region. 

JD Vance The Bethesda Foundation annually hosts the Bethesda LYCEUM, a premier social event featuring well-known keynote speakers. This year's speaker is, J.D. Vance, investor, commentator, and author of the #1 New York Times best seller Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis. Described by the National Review as a "brilliant book" and by The Economist as "one of the most important" reads of 2016. 

Since 2002, more than $2.5 million has been raised to support Bethesda North Hospital through the Bethesda LYCEUM.  Past speakers have included Astronaut Captin Mark Kelly, Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton, Lt.
