The month of September is dedicated to recognizing five different cancer types: prostate, pediatric, thyroid, gynecologic and blood cancers. Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center uses these cancer awareness months throughout the year as an opportunity to bring attention to and provide educational and screening opportunities for these various diseases.
Events and screening opportunities
On September 10, 2022, AAMDS International Foundation will be hosting their annual Patient and Family Conference at Roswell Park’s downtown campus. This conference is for patients, families and caregivers affected by aplastic anemia, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, myelodysplastic syndromes and AML, with presentations from Roswell Park physicians.
September 24, 2022, marks the 11th Annual Cruisin’ for a Cure – a free prostate cancer education and early detection event, that combines a classic car show with one-on-one early detection prostate screening consultations with Roswell Park physicians.
Keep an eye on our events calendar and social media for more events taking place through the month of September!
