Lake Regional Health System invites the community to a cancer services open house from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 5. This free event, held at Lake Regional Cancer Center, is an opportunity for the public to learn about exciting advances Lake Regional is making in cancer care.
“We invite the public to meet our new specialists, learn about our new equipment and technology, and interact with longtime members of our cancer team,” said Marcy Maxwell, R.N., director of Lake Regional Cancer Services. “We’re proud of the care we provide to our patients, and we think many people in our community will be surprised to learn how much we offer. We hope people come to this event and ask questions to understand why so many of our patients say they would not go anywhere else for their cancer care.”
Along with meeting members of the cancer team, attendees will enjoy refreshments and learn about:
- lung cancer screening
- breast services, including 3-D mammo
- urology services, including a hands-on demonstration of da Vinci X robotic surgeries
- radiation therapy services
In addition, there will be free take-home colorectal cancer screening kits available to all and a drawing for a $50 Woods Supermarket gift card. See the event listing at lakeregional.com/CancerOpenHouse.
