Focus On … What’s Really New in Cancer Treatment?

Cancer is a scary thing to talk about, and if you have it, even more so. But there are all kinds of new and innovative things happening in the world of cancer treatments and research. These classes, with physicians from our TriHealth Cancer Institute, will give you deep insight into what is happening at TriHealth. We are fighting for you and we are winning!

Reservations for ALL “Focus On” classes listed below must be made by calling 513 569 6400 or by registering online at TriHealth.com/Seniors, under Focus Classes.

1. 23 and Me? - Cancelled

Has everyone in your family been looking at where your ancestors came from? Did you get a genetic test for the holidays? This is a fun thing to do for many families, but it is NOT genetic testing. If you have cancer or other diseases in your family, it can be critically important to find out what this testing means for you, your children, your grandchildren and other relatives. Come hear the genetic counselors from our TriHealth Cancer Institute talk about what testing tells us, how we look for specific markers and how to tackle the information.
