About one in three of us will develop cancer, and we all have known someone with this deadly disease. Dr. Edward Benz will explain how cancer develops and review the remarkable progress in understanding and treating this complex disease. Cancer treatment has progressed from traditional chemotherapy and radiation to targeted therapies, including immune therapies, vaccines, and CAR-T, a form of gene therapy. Cancer care also focuses on lifestyle factors like diet and stress management to relieve symptoms and improve outcomes. After his presentation, Dr. Benz will welcome your questions.
Dr. Edward J. Benz, Jr. is an internationally renowned hematologist and President and CEO Emeritus of the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. At Harvard Medical School, he’s Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics and Genetics.
