Alternate Tuesdays • 12:15 p.m.-1:45 p.m. • Shapiro CD
January 16, 30 • February 13, 27 • March 13, (27 break) • April 3
We will share the most important data on the major progress achieved in the understanding of the disease and causes of cancer. We will review the current concepts on cancer prevention and the accepted practice of screening and early detection. We will explain the refined methods of diagnosis and the treatments in use. Many types of cancer are curable and cancer is no longer the most lethal of chronic diseases, but the most chronic of lethal diseases. Questions will be most welcome.
