Educational opportunities on September 29 upcoming

Two educational programs are scheduled on Wednesday, September 29. The two programs will be be very different: one for very early stage patients; the other for patients with progressive prostate cancer at risk for (or already diagnosed with) de novo metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer (mHSPC)

The earlier program that evening is being coordinated by the Cancer Support Community of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky together with Prostate Cancer International. Dr. Elisabeth Heath of the Karamanos Cancer Center and Wayne State University, Detroit, MI, will be the featured speaker. Dr. Heath is a medical oncologist who specializes in the management of late stage genitourinary cancers, and prostate cancer in particular. She will be speaking about the diagnosis and work-up of patients with metastatic, hormone-sensitive prostate cancer, with a particular focus on new tests and methods that can be used to ensure the accuracy of diagnosis of such patients and how such data may impact their treatment.

This program will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Eastern time (4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Pacific). Please click here to register for this program. Patients will be encouraged to participate by asking questions for Dr. Heath after her introductory presentation.

The later program — for men with favorable-risk forms of localized prostate cancer — is coordinated by AnCan. In this program, the featured speaker will be Prof. Laurence Klotz, MD, of the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Dr. Klotz is often referred to as the “father” of active surveillance since he was one of the very first physicians to start managing men on a rigorous set of protocols using this technique.

Dr. Klotz will be talking about “Prostate cancer — active surveillance and more … past, present, and future.” The program will run from 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Eastern time (5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Pacific). You can sign up to register for this program if you click here. Registrants will again be able to ask questions.
