San Diego’s first proton therapy center will open for patient care in summer 2013, and local residents can learn the facts about this remarkably precise form of cancer treatment at a free presentation hosted by Scripps Health.
Attendees will learn about the science behind proton therapy, understand its benefits and explore the controversies surrounding its use. For some cancers, proton therapy offers a more precise and aggressive approach to destroying tumors, compared to conventional X-Ray radiation.
The presentation will be led by Dr. Carl Rossi, Jr., one of the world’s leading experts in proton therapy and medical director of Scripps Proton Therapy Center.
