PC survivors to meet Feb. 17

The Prostate Cancer Survival Group will welcome Dr. Everard Hughes, head of hematology-oncology at Ridgecrest Regional Hospital, at its Monday, Feb. 17 meeting at 7 p.m. in the RRH Metchtenberg Conference Center.

Dr. Hughes will be speaking about a new medical imaging scanner (Explorer) that images the entire body at the same time (in 20 to 30 seconds), resulting high quality images with greatly reduced radiation exposure to the patient.

As time permits, Dr. Hughes will also cover new developments at the RRH Cancer Center, including combined programs with the A/V Cancer Center in Ridgecrest.

For more information on the meeting, please call Will Blackburn, 760-375-3660.
