The University of Arizona Cancer Center (UACC) is partnering with the Tucson Jewish Community Center (the Tucson J) to deliver a four-part educational series on cancer beginning in early February. The series, which is free and open to the public, will be delivered by clinical and faculty members of the UACC and will focus on trends in research and clinical care involving such topics as breast cancer, head and neck cancer, translational science, and diet. The lectures are free and open to the public and are held at the Tucson J at 6:30 p.m.

 

Bear Down. Beat Cancer.

 

Cancer directly impacts 1 out of every 3 people. Science and technology has transformed the fight against cancer since then-President Richard Nixon called for a War on Cancer by signing the National Cancer Act of 1971. Now there is a renewed effort to push the boundaries of medicine in a search for a cure with President Obama’s Cancer Moonshot. From precision medicine, to novel drug development, to the new frontiers of immunology, researchers and clinicians from the University of Arizona Cancer Center will discuss in a free, four-part series the state of cancer research and its impact on the newest and most promising cancer fighting treatments moving into the clinic. The first Thursday of each month, February to May. All lectures are at 6:30 p.m.:
