The spring semester of Emory's ever-popular Mini-Medical School will feature ten of Georgia's most prominent physicians and researchers explaining the latest discoveries in cancer research, treatment and prevention.
At Emory's Winship Cancer Institute, groundbreaking molecular research, patient-centered cancer care, and innovative clinical trials are currently underway. Learn about the latest advances in treatment for breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancer. Discover how new imaging techniques can detect cancer earlier and contribute to specialized gene therapies, and hear how maintaining and enhancing quality of life is becoming a greater part of cancer treatment programs. In addition, a one-night "residency" will take students on a tour of the Winship Cancer Institute laboratories and patient care areas.
Hosted by Randy Martin, MD, Emory Cardiologist and well-known TV correspondent, the course will begin March 22, 2005, and continue for five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. Refreshments begin at 6:30. Classes are held in the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Administration Building Auditorium, 1440 Clifton Road, with free parking at the Michael Street parking deck and shuttle service to the building.
