Physician to Physician Talks

As your practice gets busier and busier, you may not always have the time to leave your worksite to receive information about the latest technologies, therapies and drugs offered to cancer patients today. Because of this, we have developed an informal physician speakers program, customized to meet the needs of your practice.

As some of your colleagues have done, you may invite one of our cancer experts into your facility to provide a 30-minute talk during breakfast, lunch or the dinner hours. The topics may be customized to meet the area of interest of your team.

Highlighted on this page are just a few of the topics that the physician teams at Roswell Park can deliver to your busy clinical offices. If you would like to schedule a speaking engagement, or if there is a topic that you would like covered and you don’t see it listed here, please call Roswell Park at 716-845-8182 or email constance.brucato@roswellpark.org.
