Dome - Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Symposium
Dome September 2014
Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Symposium
Date: September 4, 2014
Each year, nearly 88,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. To mark Gynecologic Oncology Awareness Month, the Johns Hopkins Kelly Gynecologic Oncology Service will offer a symposium at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront on Sept. 27 regarding state-of-the-art treatment updates and cancer survivorship for women with ovarian, fallopian tube, primary peritoneal and uterine cancers. Featuring physicians and researchers from Johns Hopkins, Massachusetts General Hospital and other nationally recognized cancer centers, the symposium runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to cancer survivors and their families. Topics include the latest clinical trials and novel treatments for gynecologic cancers, sexual health, menopause, improving cancer survivorship and the role of “unsung hero” caregivers. There will also be a nutrition and wellness program.
The symposium is co-sponsored by the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. For details and registration, call 410-955-8240.
