Pink power:Johnson Cancer Research Center's breast cancer awareness luncheon Oct. 21

Friday, Aug. 26, 2016


MANHATTAN — Ladies are invited to enjoy lunch with friends as they learn about breast health and cancer at the seventh annual Pink Power Luncheon for breast cancer awareness from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at Holiday Inn at the Campus, 1641 Anderson Ave.

The event, sponsored by Kansas State University's Johnson Cancer Research Center and Komen Kansas, is free and includes a presentation, lunch, educational materials and door prizes.

Annelise Nguyen, associate professor of toxicology in Kansas State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and affiliate of the Johnson Cancer Research Center, will present "Understanding the Origin of and Therapies for Breast Cancer." Nguyen studies the progression of breast cancer cells from estrogen-dependent to estrogen-independent, which can lead to cancer recurrence and metastasis.

Advance registration is required by Friday, Oct. 14, and can be made by contacting Marcia Locke at marcia@k-state.edu or 785-532-6705. Earlier registration is suggested as the event fills up quickly.

The Johnson Cancer Research Center supports Kansas State University's cancer research, education and public outreach through programs made possible by private donations. More information about the center is on its website, cancer.k-state.edu.
