John Abad, M.D., of IU Health Goshen Hospital's Center for Cancer Care will review an array of treatments and novel advances such as those that change initially inoperable tumors to operable tumors for a number of cancers. He'll also highlight advances in oncology, including targeted therapies, immunotherapy, gene therapy and nano-oncology. A question and answer session will follow the lecture.

The lecture series is design to educate members of the general public about medical trends and enhance their ability to ask better questions of their doctors. All lectures are free and open to the public. Free parking is available just south of the building.
