Talk at Support Centre

Sligo Cancer Support Centre is pleased to announce a talk by Prof Frank Sullivan on new developments and treatments in cancer in both men and women.

The talk is on Tuesday 9th May, 7-9 pm at the centre with a question and answer session at the end.

Professor Sullivan is the Principal Investigator on numerous ongoing Prostate Cancer Trials such as Alpharadin and Tak-700. He is highly active in the treatment of prostate cancer and personally treats over 400 patients per year with various radiation techniques. He is a member of the International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement which is a Harvard based international standard setting group in Patient Related Quality of Life information in prostate cancer.

Professor Sullivan is Vice Dean for Strategic Partnerships and Adjunct Professor of Medicine, NUI Galway; Visiting Professor of Radiation Medicine at Hofstra University, New York; and the Medical Director, Department of Radiation Oncology at the Galway Clinic.

He is the Founding Director of the Prostate Cancer Institute (PCI), a constituent research institute of NUI Galway. He is the Deputy Director, Galway Clinical Research Facility and Associate Director for Oncology in that organization.

Prof Sullivan now serves as the National Director of Prostate Brachytherapy at the National Cancer Control Programme and sits on several standard setting bodies, both nationally and internationally.

This talk about ongoing developments in the treatment and detection of cancer is of interest to both men and women, and we strongly advise you to make an early expression of interest in attending.

The Centre needs to know an estimate of numbers to decide whether to hold the meeting in Wine Street or to move to a larger venue if numbers demand it, so if you are interested in attending this free talk can you let the centre know .
