Get All Your Questions about Cancer Answered by the Experts at Emanuel Cancer Center
Turlock, CA— Have questions about cancer? Get them answered by the experts at the Emanuel Cancer Center during a special evening presentation called “Baffled by Cancer?” on April 23 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
“Cancer is a complicated, confusing disease that takes many forms and has many treatments,” explained Michael Iltis, executive director of Emanuel Cancer Center. “Everyone reads or hears some information about cancer, but most of the time people don’t know if that’s the latest information, or if it applies to them. This program will be presented by the oncologists at Emanuel Cancer Center and will be the most up-to-date information available.”
Topics for the presentation include:
• The twelve most common types of cancer
• The prevention, diagnosis and management of cancer
• Theories on what causes cancer
• What we know for sure about preventing cancer
The expert panel will include Dr. Mohamed Eldaly, Dr. Lucio M. Nobile and Nurse Practitioner Michelle Di Giovanni from Emanuel Specialty Care – Medical Oncology; and Dr. Quoc Luu and Dr. Gauravjit Singh from the Stanford Emanuel Radiation Oncology Center.
“These expert speakers will use a series of slides to highlight facts about cancer, as well as explain treatments, provide updates on the latest research and answer questions from the audience,” Iltis said. “It will be an enlightening evening that will take some of the mystery – and fear – out of cancer.”
The free presentation will be held at the Emanuel Cancer Center at 880 E. Tuolumne Road in Turlock. To register, call Emanuel Cancer Center at 664-2434 or register online at www.emanuelmedicalcenter.org/cancer.
