Cancer Lunch and Learn: What is Immunotherapy and Why is it So Exciting for Cancer Treatment?

*Please note the subject and speaker has changed.* Immunotherapy is treatment that relies on being able to recruit the body’s normal immune cells to kill cancer cells. In this talk, we will start to explain how recently approved drugs and treatment approaches are able to “wake-up” the immune system to identify and kill cancer cells even after the cancer becomes big enough to be a clinical problem. The presenter is Thomas C. Shea, MD.

Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends and caregivers/supports, but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Lunch will be served. Seating is limited. Call 449-7300 to register. The event is from noon to 1:00pm.
