With investment in cancer research continuing to expand the types of treatment available to cancer patients, it’s as important—and as challenging—as ever for providers in North Texas and beyond to stay on the cutting edge. This panel will explore how this region is competing to do just that, featuring some of the biggest names in cancer care across Dallas-Fort Worth:
• Dr. Steven Paulson, President, Texas Oncology
• Dr. Carlos Arteaga, Director, Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center at UT Southwestern
• Melissa Threlkeld, Regional VP of Oncology Services, Medical City Healthcare
• Dr. Ted Laetsch, Director of Experimental Therapeutics Program, Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s Health
We’ll ask these panelists about the specific research and treatments pumping new life into cancer care here, and we’ll discuss the overall approach that providers are taking. With cancer care in constant evolution, how do you decide which areas to push into full throttle, and where you should take a wait-and-see approach? What does the future hold?
This event will happen the morning of Thursday, Oct. 18. We’ll start your day off with some breakfast, with registration set to open at around 7 a.m. and the panel kicking off at about 7:45 a.m., leaving some time for audience Q&A. It’ll be here at our offices downtown—750 N. St. Paul St., #2100, Dallas, TX 75201. Learn more and grab tickets over at the Eventbrite page.
