By Staff

Educational sessions for health professionals and for families dealing with cancer will mark Saturday's third annual Colorado Cancer Day, presented by the University of Colorado Denver, University of Colorado Cancer Center and University of Colorado Hospital.

The continuing education program for medical professionals offers the latest information on cancer detection, treatment and surveillance. Faculty from the center and UC Denver will present the full-day seminar, which offers Continuing Medical Education credit; registration fees vary.

Saturday's half-day program for cancer patients, survivors and their supporters promises the public access to experts who will provide information and answer questions at sessions divided by type of cancer: breast, colorectal, lung and prostate. The event is free and includes a complimentary lunch.

Both programs are at Education 2 North on the Anschutz Medical Campus. For more information or to register, go to
