Tulane University's Dr. Oliver Sartor, a renowned prostate cancer specialist, will offer a free seminar about the latest prostate cancer treatment and diagnosis advances on Sept. 15.
Sartor will make himself available to answer questions after the ceremony. The goal of the event is to help prostate cancer patients, people with family history of prostate cancer, patients’ caregivers, health care providers and physicians. Through this seminar, they will learn more details about the disease itself as well as various treatment options.
This is an important topic because one out of every seven men will receive a prostate cancer diagnosis within their lifetimes. One out of every 38 men will die from prostate cancer.
Sartor is the leader of the Prostate Cancer Research Program at Tulane. He is among the few medical oncologists throughout the world who dedicates his specialty to prostate cancer.
“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,” Sartor said.
The free seminar will begin at 5:30 p.m at the Louisiana Cancer Research Center’s first-floor conference room. The free event is open to the general public and includes light refreshments and complimentary parking.
