Gynecological cancer talk at Yale

NEW HAVEN - Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven and Yale Cancer Center will present a free health talk, "Understanding Gynecological Cancers" at 6 p.m. January 13 in Yale-New Haven Hospital's East Pavilion cafeteria.

Dr. Peter Schwartz will be the speaker.
According to his bio on Yale's Web site, Schwartz was the first director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Yale University "which he established in 1979 and he was responsible for creating the Fellowship Training Program in 1980." It also says his "research has included the identification of estrogen and progestin receptors in ovarian cancer, which led to the first clinical trial using anti–estrogens for management of women with advanced or recurrent ovarian cancer."
He established the Yale Early Detection Program for Ovarian Cancer in 1990 and has been very active in developing therapies for the clinical management of uncommon forms of uterine cancer, the Web site says.
