Tulane Cancer Center to Host Free Prostate Cancer Seminar

Dr. Oliver Sartor will provide a Prostate Cancer Seminar on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 5:30 p.m. in the first-floor conference room of the Louisiana Cancer Research Center, 1700 Tulane Ave. (corner of Tulane and S. Claiborne).  Light refreshments will be served, and complimentary parking is available in the building’s garage, accessible from S. Derbigny St. 

Dr. Sartor, one of the few medical oncologists in the world focused on prostate cancer and head of Tulane’s Prostate Cancer Research Program, will discuss the latest in research and treatment and answer attendees’ questions.  

The event is free and open to the public.  Prostate cancer patients and their caregivers, those with a family history of the disease, physicians and other healthcare providers, or anyone else with an interest in learning more should plan to attend. 

September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.  One in every nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, and one in 41 will die of this disease.  “This seminar will raise awareness and provide men and the families who love them with the information they need to be proactive when it comes to prostate cancer issues” said Sartor.

Seating is limited and registration is requested but not required. For more information or to register for the free seminar, visit http://www.nolabluedoo.org and click on “Public Lecture,” or contact Melanie Cross at 504-988-6592 or mcross@tulane.edu.
