A medical forum to discuss advancements in breast cancer treatments will be Thursday at 7 p.m. at Adelphi University’s Ruth S. Harley University Center Ballroom in Garden City.
Speakers include Dr. Kathie-Ann Joseph, director of the breast service at Health and Hospitals Corp. in Manhattan and assistant professor of surgery at New York University Langone Medical Center, and Dr. Steven M. Sugarman of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in Commack.
Joseph has several grants for breast cancer research and seeks to provide cancer screenings to communities that lack those resources.
Sugarman is assistant chairman of the department of medicine for Clinical Trials in the Regional Network. He has participated in trials involving breast cancer research. Along with news about treatment advances, there will also be information on health care and updates on clinical trials.
The Beth C. Tortolani Foundation and Meghan’s Pansies Breast Cancer Fund, charities devoted to breast cancer awareness, are sponsoring the event.
