Upcoming Events:

CAR-T Cell Therapy for Blood Cancer

April 10, 5:30pm

While cures for cancer remain elusive, early detection combined with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapies using drugs that target and disrupt specific molecular actions in cancer cells have helped improve the odds for survival of many cancers. In recent years, immunotherapy has emerged as a promising new cancer treatment. Immunotherapy enlists and strengthens the power of a patient’s immune system to attack tumors. The most advanced immunotherapy is called CAR-T and in 2017, the Food and Drug Administration approved two CAR T-cell therapies, one for the treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and the other for adults with advanced lymphomas. While cures for cancer remain elusive, early detection combined with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapies using drugs that target and disrupt specific molecular actions in cancer cells have helped improve the odds for survival of many cancers. Join The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health and Mayerson JCC to learn about CAR-T Cell Therapy from oncologist Jim Essell, MD. Dr. Essell of OHC is the medical director of The Jewish Hospital’s Blood Cancer Center.

The Drippy, Drippy Nose. Why So Drippy?

July 23, 5:30pm

That annoying runny nose can be caused by anything that irritates or inflames the nasal tissues. Infections and allergies are common causes, while polyps, a foreign body, a tumor or migraine-like headaches are less common reasons behind the drip, drip, drip. And then there’s the chronically runny nose that occurs for no apparent reason. Join The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health and Mayerson JCC to learn about drippy noses and their causes and treatment options from otolaryngologist Lee Zimmer, MD.

Brain Tumor Center, Brain Tumors and Treatment

September 10, 5:30pm

The region’s largest health system has partnered with the region’s largest neurosurgical and oncology practices to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art, compassionate care for the community at the Brain Tumor Center at The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health.
