If you are going to be in New Orleans, or for anyone within reasonable driving distance, Tulane Urology is putting on a two hour program on "The Role of Radiation Therapy in Prostate Cancer" on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm It's on the first floor in the Reily Pavillion. The speaker is Dr Marnin Merrick, Chairman of Radiation Oncology.

The address is 1415 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, 70112

I hope this information helps someone.

Not that I wouldn't love to come to Lousiana. Maybe they could reschedule it for the GFMPH conference in April.
