Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Thomas Shea, MD. 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. Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information. Lectures are viewable online via GoToWebinar or by participating in the lecture at one of our designated viewing sites. Please contact us for more information about GoToWebinar registration or to be connected with a site coordinator near you.
