NORTHERN WESTCHESTER HOSPITAL AND AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY
CO-SPONSOR FREE MONTHLY PROSTATE HEALTH & WELLNESS MEETINGS
August 9 Topic: “The Latest in Radiation Therapy”
Northern Westchester Hospital and the American Cancer Society are co-sponsoring free, monthly meetings for men on Prostate Health & Wellness. The meeting–held the second Thursday of each month–are facilitated by a prostate cancer survivor and offer information, encouragement, discussion and support by an interdisciplinary team of professionals.
Dr. Alfred Tinger will speak on “The Latest in Radiation Therapy—IMRT vs. Cyberknife” on Thursday, August 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Conference Room D at NWH, 400 East Main Street, Mt. Kisco. To register, call the American Cancer Society at 800-227-2345.
The monthly prostate health meetings are the brainchild of Dr. Warren Bromberg, director of the Prostate Cancer Program at NWH, who pointed out that prostate cancer affects more than 200,000 men each year. If caught early, however, prostate cancer has a high treatment success rate. Visit www.nwhc.net/ProstateLectures to view a schedule of topics for the year.
