STEM Talk: Cancer, Medicine and the Medical Physicist (Durham District School Board)

Cancer, Medicine and the Medical Physicist

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, it is estimated that every day in 2015, 539 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer and 214 Canadians will die from cancer. When faced with the challenges of cancer, the diagnosis and treatment process involves a team of medical professionals beyond the traditional medical doctor and nurse.

Dr. Young Lee will talk about her role as the Radiation Oncology Medical Physicist at the Sunnybrook Health Science Centre in the research and treatment of cancer. The first responsibility of the radiation oncology physicist is to ensure the best possible treatment using the most current technology and techniques available in medicine. Dr. Lee works with teams of professionals to both treat cancer patients and to conduct cutting edge research to further enhance the tools available.

This talk will take place on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 from 7:00-8:00PM in room 1011 at the Durham District School Board office, 400 Taunton Road East, Whitby, Ontario.
