All Aspects of Breast Cancer were Presented and Discussed at the 2015 Public Symposium Series
Somerville, MA…. Cancer Research Simplified (CRS) held its first public cancer symposium on all aspects of breast cancer on February 4th, 2015 at the Center for Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA. The second symposium to be held in April, 2015 on Lung Cancer.
Sponsored by Genentech, Boston Thermography Center, The Print House, MBTA, Life Alive Organic Café, Flatbread Company, Iggy’s Bread, and J.P. Licks, the symposium provided simplified information on breast cancer prevention and early detection, current treatment strategies, clinical trials, life after survival, and nutritional facts. The symposium further highlighted an extensive Q&A section panel, during which the public and the speakers who are cancer researchers connected with each other, which is an important part of CRS’s mission, and discussed open questions. As in all its events, CRS brought the symposium to its conclusion with its fun and educational game, The CRS Cancer Quiz Game™, to ensure that important breast cancer, nutrition, and overall cancer-related facts were understood by the audience. The symposium concluded with its acknowledgements ceremony for speakers, sponsors, and volunteers.
“We are thrilled to have completed our very first symposium so smoothly; highly educational, professional, and fun – exactly what CRS is all about,” said Dr. Ayguen Sahin, CRS Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “Our CRS Cancer Symposium Series 2015 is designed to fulfill our mission in cancer education by providing the latest research and cancer information in a language and platform that makes it easy to understand, by bringing cancer researchers, medical professionals, or center representatives together with the public for closer and enriched communication. It looks like we have accomplished this important step with our amazing team of volunteers, our sponsors, and speakers. We can’t wait to organize our next symposiums on lung, colon, and prostate cancers.”
The CRS Cancer Quiz Game™ 1st prize winner, Ms. G, who wishes to stay anonymous, won a free breast thermography exam from Boston Thermography Center. The 2nd prize winner, Ms. Anna Faustova, won a gift card from Life Alive Organic Café, and the 3rd prize winner, Ms. Zeynep Guler won a breast cancer awareness note pad set.
