In this digital age, it can be hard to filter through the sea of information available about cancer to determine how much of it applies to you. With the seemingly ever-changing facts regarding cancer risk and occurrence it is important to gauge your personal risk, but how do you go about it when there are so many different factors to consider? Gathering information on what may have been inherited from family members and what you could have been exposed to is helpful, but how then should you proceed with this knowledge? As our understanding of cancer evolves, so do the questions. Our discussion will help you navigate these complex issues by breaking down the latest facts, statistics and research so that you can make meaningful changes today that can lower your cancer risk in the future. A Q&A component will be included.

Dr. John Marshall, Director of the Otto J. Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancers at Georgetown Lombardi and Chief of Hematology and Oncology at Georgetown University Hospital, and Dr. Claudine Isaacs, Medical Director of Georgetown Lombardi’s Cancer Assessment and Risk Evaluation program and Co-Director of Lombardi’s Breast Cancer Research Program, will share their insight and expertise in the area of cancer occurrence, risk and treatment options. With over 40 years of collective experience in cancer treatment and research, Dr. Marshall and Dr. Isaacs will bring a wealth of knowledge and first-hand experience to the discussion on what we know about cancer today.
