Each year 12.7 million people find out they have cancer and 7.6 million people die from the disease. However, according to the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), 30-45% of all cancer cases could be prevented, and one-third can be cured through early diagnosis and treatment.
You don’t have to go to a doctor to find out how. On March 14, cancer experts from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center will discuss cancer screening, prevention and control at a Mini-Medical School hosted by CUNY School of Medicine at The City College of New York. This event, which is free and open to the Harlem and City College communities, takes place from 5:30-7pm at the North Academic Center, Room 1/103, of The City College of New York at 160 Convent Ave.
The doctors who will be in to share their knowledge and take your questions include:
Lewis Kampel, MC, Medical Oncologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Medical Director, Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care
Donna D’Alessio, MD, Radiologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Arnold Markowitz, MD, Gastroenterologist, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Please RSVP here to attend this event which will also include healthy refreshments and a special surprise.
