Banner Desert Medical Center is hosting a seminar to educate the public about gynecologic cancers, including the five types of women’s reproductive system cancers. The seminar will focus on recognizing possible symptoms, being aware of risk factors, how to talk to your doctor about your symptoms and concerns, and the unique characteristics of each of the five gynecologic cancers.

An in-depth discussion of reproductive system cancer prevention will include a guide to simple tests and vaccines that can significantly lower your risk of developing some types of cancer — and that can protect your children’s reproductive health as well.

The seminar will be on Tuesday, March 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Banner Desert Medical Center, 1400 S. Dobson Rd., Mesa. Seating is limited, to register call (602) 230-CARE (2273).
