Demystifying Cancer: Physicians, Researchers, And Web Experts Offer Two-Day Symposium For Patients, Families, Health Care Providers, And The Public

day, speakers will focus on current therapies, clinical trials, new horizons in clinical research, and how to navigate the Internet to find accurate and timely information about cancer. (Dr. Benjamin's navigation session will be repeated for the museum-going public on Saturday afternoon). Following Dr. Cassileth's presentation at lunch, a panel of experts--including a genetic counselor, a psychiatrist who specializes in helping parents of young cancer patients, an oncology nurse, and a cancer survivor--will provide various perspectives on "Coping with Cancer."

To enhance the outreach program, MGH, the Whitehead Institute, the Museum of Science, and ASLME have invited six other institutions to join them in providing public information displays at the Museum from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Staffed by medical professionals, information specialists, and volunteers, these displays will offer brochures on the prevention and treatment of many different types of cancer, as well as Web access and other resources. Participants include the Cancer Resource Room at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center; the Blum Patient Family Resource Center & Satellites at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; the Beth Israel-Deaconess Learning Center; The Bradley Resource Room at New England Medical Center; the Massachusetts Department of Public Health; and the National Cancer Institute, Cancer Information Service. In addition, representatives from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners Consumer Health Reference Center will shed light on how to research medical topics through the local public library.

Schwartz Center, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Reynolds-DeWalt Printing, Sametz Blackstone Associates, MGH, the Whitehead Institute, the Museum of Science, and ASLME.
