Experts from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the world’s largest cancer center, will be in West Palm Beach this weekend for the annual Making Cancer History educational seminar.

This year alone, more than 340 people from South Florida sought care from the cancer center of MD Anderson, which was ranked No. 1 by the U.S. News and World Report in its “Best Hospitals” survey. The center has an affiliate program with Orlando Health.

MD Anderson researchers will talk about progress at the cancer center’s Moon Shots Program, which is focused on using the center’s resources and capabilities to quickly reduce death from several cancers.

The public is invited to listen to lectures from MD Anderson’s president, Dr. Ronald A. DePinho, and from leading experts in prostate cancer and leukemia.

The two-hour seminar at the Cohen Pavilion in the Raymond F. Kravis Center of the Performing Arts (701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach) begins Saturday, Dec. 14, at 9 a.m. with a breakfast buffet.
