Upcoming documentary “Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies” tells the comprehensive story of cancer — from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions — and interweaves a sweeping historical narrative with intimate stories about contemporary patients. The film also investigates the latest scientific breakthroughs that may have brought lasting cures within sight.

 

On Monday, March 9, at 4 p.m., join us for a special, one-hour preview of the film and discuss its implications with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) experts. The four panelists — Peter Emanuel, M.D., director of the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, who specializes in leukemia and lymphoma; Suzanne Klimberg, M.D., breast cancer surgeon and director of the UAMS Breast Cancer Program; Matthew Steliga, M.D., a UAMS cardiothoracic surgeon specializing in lung cancer, tumors of the chest and esophageal cancer; and Issam Makhoul, M.D., a UAMS medical oncologist specializing in breast and gastrointestinal cancers — will open a one-hour panel discussion immediately after the film.
