Program Description

Event Details

From alternative treatments to fad diets, media and the internet is full of theories on how cancer can be caused, prevented or treated. But how much of this is true, and how much is fake news?

Decoding Cancer is all about separating the facts from the fiction when it comes to cancer and exploring the many real advances being made in prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivorship. Medical students from Einstein College of Medicine will also answer common questions like: 

  1. What are the most common cancers? In men? Women? 
  2. When should you get screened?
  3. What does those screenings look like?
  4. What are some emerging treatments/technologies?

This is a virtual program. Zoom information is below:
