Cancer Treatment Seminar

Cancer Treatment Seminar

Spencer, IA–Over a person’s lifetime, the risk of being diagnosed with cancer is less than one in three people, according to the American Cancer Society. Being informed about prevention, knowing symptoms to watch for, and understanding treatment options is important in positioning yourself for a healthy outcome.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, or if you’re simply interested in proactively knowing more about current cancer care, attend Spencer Hospital’s free seminar on “Cancer Treatment: Principles and New Directions” presented by Dr. Glenn Preston, medical oncologist for Abben Cancer Center of Spencer Hospital. Dr. Preston will discuss the principles of cancer care as well as new treatment options.

The free program will take place in Spencer Hospital’s Conference Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan.23.  While there is no charge to attend, attendees are asked to pre-register as light refreshments will be served and seating is limited. To register for this event, please call Spencer Hospital’s Education Reservation line at (712) 264-6142, and leave a message or register online at www.spencerhospital.org, click on Events & Education.

Attending this educational session provides a great opportunity to personally meet Dr. Preston, who relocated to Iowa last spring to serve patients of Abben Cancer Center. Prior to moving to Spencer, Dr. Preston served as a hematologist/oncologist with Cancer Care Centers of South Texas, located in Marble Falls, Texas. He received bachelor degrees in biochemistry and botany/plant sciences from the University of California. Dr. Preston also has a master’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin and later received his PhD in biochemistry from the University of Missouri, Columbia, where he also graduated from medical school.
