Beloit Health System will celebrate their first anniversary of the new Cancer Center on Saturday, January 17th from 10 a.m.- 12 noon. The community is invited to attend and learn more about Beloit’s cancer fighting technology and cancer prevention. The new center has successfully combined all cancer services under one roof and strengthened their relationship with the UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison.
The one year anniversary event will feature cancer education and prevention, along with an opportunity for tours of the beautiful center. Speakers include: Dr. Christina Golner, Surgeon, explaining the process that patient’s go through if they have an abnormal mammogram; Nicole Anderson, Registered Dietitian, sharing the food recommendations for preventing cancer, and Dr. Peter Mahler, Radiation Oncologist, on updates on the prevention and treatment of cancer.
“There are many people who are still asking to tour the Cancer Center,” states Sharon Cox, Cancer Center Director. “We are always happy to do this. For this reason we are having an anniversary event to invite our community to see the facility and learn more about preventing and treating cancer.” The event will also offer refreshments and an opportunity to win an Apple Ipad tablet.
“The Center has expanded and improved our cancer treatment options,” states Tim McKevett, Beloit Health System President and CEO. “It is equipped with state-of-the-art cancer-fighting technology such as Image Guided Radiation and has served our community very well over the past 12 months. This is important new technology because our community deserves the best.”
Dr. Mahler, Beloit Health System’s full-time radiation oncologist, is on the faculty of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health. He has practiced in Beloit since 1991. Dr. Walter Vogel, medical oncologist, is triple board-certified and has been with Beloit Clinic since 1987. Currently, US News and World Report ranks the University of Wisconsin in the top 50 of cancer facilities and UW Hospital and Clinics the number-one hospital in Wisconsin.
