Cancer prevention and treatment addressed at annual event


Dozens of people took advantage of a rare opportunity to hear the latest on breast and colon cancers, straight from the professionals in the trenches, at the University of Hawaii Cancer Center’s “Quest for a Cure” in Kakaako.

Scientists and specialists addressed everything from prevention, to the scope of the problem in Hawaii, to cancer treatments.

“We are trying to also take some of that basic research and translate it into clinical benefit in the community,” said Dr. Kenneth Sumida, “so this is our opportunity to let the community know that we’re at the forefront in a lot of ways by doing these things.”

This was the cancer center’s fifth annual “Quest for a Cure.”
