Join us for relaxed evenings of appetizers, wine, and valuable medical information in partnership with The Jewish Hospital - Mercy Health.

While cures for cancer remain elusive, early detection combined with surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and targeted therapies have helped improve the odds for survival of many cancers. In recent years, immunotherapy has emerged as a promising new cancer treatment. Immunotherapy, including CAR-T cell therapy as the most advanced type, enlists and strengthens the power of a patient's immune system to attack tumors. Join us with The Jewish Hospital – Mercy Health to learn about CAR-T Cell Therapy from oncologist Jim Essell, M.D., medical director of The Jewish Hospital’s Blood Cancer Center.
