The Perlmutter Cancer Center Cancer Education Series is a series of informative lectures, panel discussions, and presentations focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer.

Speakers include cancer specialists and authorities, cancer survivors, and other healthcare professionals who cover the latest information in cancer diagnosis, treatment options, research, and resources.

The Perlmutter Cancer Center's compassionate, open forum allows ample time for questions and comments from the audience. Audiences include patients, family members, future healthcare professionals, and the NYC community.

Lectures are hosted at the Perlmutter Cancer Center, located on 34th street between Lexington and Third Avenues and the NYU Langone Medical Center campus located at 550 First Avenue and 31st street in Manhattan and are open to the public.

The series is sponsored by the Perlmutter Cancer Center Community Outreach and Education Program who would like to thank the Joyce and Seward Johnson Foundation for their generous support of this program, as well as all of our valued donors who show their appreciation for the importance of cancer education by supporting this program.
