The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison invites you to a series of Mini Med School sessions. Learn what you can do - and what we are discovering - to ensure better health for everybody.
The series will be led by our Mini Med School "deans":
March 19, 2015: Cancer Research and Treatment
Health Sciences Learning Center | Program: 6:30-8pm, reception with presenters: 8-9pm
Cancer treatment spans the scope of medicine - from oncology to virology, pediatrics to radiology, hematology, imaging, drug discovery and so much more. The development of cancer therapies builds upon decades of foundational research and clinical work from around the world, working to speed the transfer of science to patients.
This event will include a preview of Ken Burns’s “Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies” premiering on Wisconsin Public Television (WPT) on March 30. In addition, WPT will record this Mini Med School session for its University Place series.
