Cornering Cancer: Research & the Power to Cure
Cancer is among the leading causes of death worldwide. For 2019, the American Cancer Society predicts there will be over 1.7 million new cases of cancer in the U.S. alone. New research has led to prevention, treatment and renewed hopes for patients living with cancer; but what does it take to research cancer, discover and implement new therapies? New findings are being published on a regular basis, but clinicians and patients alike struggle to keep up with all the information. How can patients be their own advocates to get the best treatments possible and understand the latest research breakthroughs for various cancers? Join us as we discuss these and other questions surrounding five different cancers with researchers from the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, as well as local clinicians, and patient advocates.
