Event description

Description

SPEAKER: DR. HENRY R. SHIBATA,, Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University; Founding President of the Canadian Society of Surgical Oncology; Chairman Emeritus of the Cedars Cancer Foundation; and President of the Montreal Academy Club

Is there anyone untouched by cancer, the pervasive and deadly disease that has been called the “Emperor of all Maladies”? Whether directly, or through friends and family, virtually all of us have been affected by cancer. If you want to know why cancer is also known as “The Enemy Within”, come hear a talk by retired surgical oncologist Dr. Henry R. Shibata. Dr. Shibata has spent his entire career in the clinical care of patients with cancer, and the education of medical students and resident physicians. His participation in both basic and clinical research has resulted in the publication of many papers in various scientific journals. One of his major achievements, as part of the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP), was showing the world that total mastectomy, i.e., removal of the entire breast, was not necessary; preservation of the breast resulted in the same survival rates. Dr. Shibata will explain what cancer is, who gets it, and how it is diagnosed. He will outline recent advances in treatment and the dramatic increases in the survival rates for some types of cancer. Finally, he will share insights on what people can do to decrease their risk of developing cancer.

This talk, "Cancer: The Enemy Within", is the second in the 2018 Ottawa Japanese Community Association (OJCA) Speaker Series.


FAQs

I hear that you are offering a subsidy if I use Uber to come to this event. Can you tell me more?

This subsidy is available only to OJCA/OJCC members (all passengers must be members) and only for Uber rides (not available for taxis). There must be a minimum two people sharing the Uber ride. The subsidy will be: Uber cost – (# people X cost of public transit). Cost of public transit will be assumed to be: $3.50 for adults/youth 13+; $2.65 for seniors 65+.

    • Example: If there are 3 people sharing an Uber and the cost is $20, and the cost of public transit is $3.50 per person, then the subsidy would be: $20 – (3 X $3.50) = $9.50.

Maximum subsidy per ride is $15 one way; $30 round trip.To claim the subsidy, contact karen.shigeishiwaite@gmail.com for instructions.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
