The Virgin Islands Community is invited to attend and hear the latest information surrounding cancer, treatment, and the impact on individuals, families and a community.
According to the Chief of Medical Staff, Dr. June Samuel “Cancer is a growing problem in the world and within our Virgin Islands community. We are seeing more and more families affected and the public lecture will provide information about cancer that everyone should know.”
She added, “This lecture is free of charge so I want to encourage everyone to come out. The BVIHSA delivers client-centered care, and when patients and their family are informed, educated, and empowered, they usually safe guard their own health and treatment is usually more successful.”
The lecture will be presented by Dr. Steven G. Fein, MD. who is a hematologist and oncologist from Baptist Health Medical Group. Cancer is a disease caused by a malignant growth or tumor resulting from an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in the body.
