Join us as we read and discuss the history of cancer care and treatment from primitive surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, the war on cancer to recent treatments based on the genome of the specific cancer. Our text is the Pulitzer Prize winner, The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee (Scribner, 2010). This book focuses on the fascinating stories of the physicians, scientists, and activists who drove the progress of cancer treatment. Supplemental material and videos will present in more detail the procedures discussed in our text. The final two weeks will present developments in cancer treatment since the publication of our text. Average reading is about 35 pages per week. Guest speakers may enhance our study. Use of Canvas is required to be able to access discussion questions, videos, and supplemental material. Upon request, coordinators will assist members in using Canvas on a one-to-one basis. Note: Class starts on Monday, September 17, 2018. Make-up class on 12/17/18.
