Cancer Conversations: a community monthly educational series for cancer patients and families

The UNC Comprehensive Cancer Support Program is sponsoring a monthly community educational series called “Cancer Conversations.” Featuring UNC physicians and others, the series is a time intended to help people learn from and talk with cancer experts. The sessions will be held the third Tuesday of each month from 7:00 – 8:30 pm: September 20, October 18, November 15 (no session in December).

The September speaker is Donald Rosenstein, MD, director of the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program, talking about “Getting the Best Cancer Care through Support Services.” In October, Lisa Carey, MD, medical director of the UNC Breast Center, will address “Breast Cancer: Where We Are: Where We Are Going.” In November, Thomas Shea, MD, director of UNC Health Care’s Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplantation Program, will discuss “ The Who, What, Where, When and Why of Bone Marrow Transplantation.”

Dr. Rosenstein explains, “At UNC, we are committed to providing superb cancer care.  That includes sharing with our patients and caregivers the latest information and advances related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.  The purpose of this new series is to begin a community-based conversation between UNC cancer experts and the community members we serve.  These sessions will be informal and highly interactive and I suspect that we will learn much from each other.”

All sessions will be held at Carolina Pointe II at 6011 Farrington Road, Third Floor in Chapel Hill. Free parking is available and light refreshments will be served. To RSVP or for more information please call 919-445-5336.
