  • The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine was awarded to two leading researchers for their work on unleashing the body’s immune system to attack cancer, a breakthrough that has led to an entirely new class of drugs and brought lasting remissions to many patients who had run out of options. But what are the risks? What type of cancer does immunotherapy work? What should I ask my oncologist? Please come and learn all about immunotherapy.

    Dr. Anita Kaul is an oncologist at UCLA, has been in clinical practice for 20+ years, and has more than a decade of experience practice in Ventura County.

  • Laugh the night away as stand-up comics entertain you and your friends.

  • Advances in multiple disciplines including engineering, computer science, and cell biology now allow ultra-precise delivery of radiation (known as stereotactic radiotherapy) for cancer treatment. Stereotactic radiotherapy is now used for many cancers including those of the brain, lung, liver, and prostate. Recent advances also suggest an important role for stereotactic radiotherapy in the treatment of metastatic cancer. In this talk, we will review the approaches and applications of stereotactic radiotherapy in multiple cancers. Dr. Steven Lau, M.D., Ph.D., has presented on stereotactic radiotherapy at many national meetings and has published numerous research articles on it as well. Dinner will be provided. Please RSVP.
