Dr. Damara Kaplan, a urologist with the New Mexico Cancer Center, will open the conference with a talk about diagnosis and staging, essentially the first steps along prostate cancer’s treatment path.

Dr. Thomas Schroeder, a radiation oncologist with the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center, will focus on local treatment of the cancer contained within the prostate gland.

The final speaker, Dr. Jose Avitia, medical oncologist, with New Mexico Cancer Center, will focus on cancer that has spread throughout the body and disease that reoccurs following initial treatment.
