Hi everyone,
I submitted this to the OCF's Events Calendar and it was suggested I post on the forum too. I just want to let everyone know about an upcoming Johns Hopkins free online seminar. See more details below

Latest Treatment Options for Head and Neck Cancer
Head and neck cancers are on the rise because of the connection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Join Johns Hopkins head and neck surgeon Dr. Christine Gourin as she discusses the latest surgical and non-surgical approaches for the treatment of head and neck cancers, such as oropharyngeal and laryngeal cancers. Dr. Gourin will also answer questions submitted by viewers of the presentation

Tuesday, October 28
7 p.m. to 8 p.m. EDT

More information and how to RSVP: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/healthseminars/upcoming#list_seminars

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
With thanks, Morag
