Cancer conference to be held in June
The island is to host an international medical summit next month.
The Pink and Teal Conference on Breast and Ovarian Cancer will bring a “who’s who” of specialists to Bermuda from June 13 to 15.
William Keegan, president of Innovative Medical Conferences and the event organiser, said the conference would be more than triple the size of the first “pink conference” on breast cancer held on the island in 2013.
The 2013 meeting attracted about 200 medical experts and physicians.
The conference, which will run on June 14 and 15 at the Fairmont Southampton Hotel, will feature experts in the treatment and prevention of breast and ovarian cancer.
Mr Keegan said: “IMC is committed to again offering free attendance to Bermuda’s medical and nursing community.
“Those in attendance will be able to listen to and interact with some of the finest medical specialists in cancer care.”
Invitations have been sent to Bermuda College nursing students, as well as medical staff at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
Mr Keegan said guests would also be able to log professional credits through their attendance.
Francis Arena, an oncologist based in New York, is to moderate the conference and veteran cancer specialist Franco Muggia will be the keynote speaker.
The group has also invited women and family members affected by cancer to a public forum at 10am on July 12 at City Hall in Hamilton.
