This is a joint retreat between the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center's Center for Cancer Targeted Therapies and the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.
The retreat will cover the latest research and future developments in Cardio-Oncology, understanding the cardiac complications of targeted oncology treatments.

Daniel J. Lenihan, MD, Vanderbilt University Medical Center: "Cardio-Oncology: the scope of the problem, and where we sit on the International stage"
Thomas L. Force, MD, Vanderbilt University Medical Center: "What cancer-targets/pathways in the heart are making me nervous, and why?"

Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute is offering a CPR class for non-clinical staff and faculty in the Vanderbilt community. The 'Hands Only' CPR Class will be Monday, June 30, 5 to 6:15 p.m. in 5053 of Medical Center East, North Tower.
This class is not for certification. It is for any non-clinical person who doesn't know CPR or needs a refresher, and since 88 percent of cardiac arrests occur at home, lives can be saved when more people know CPR.
Space is limited for the class, and an RSVP is required.
Intro - It's Just a MAC. What Can Go Wrong?
Dr. Chris Cropsy
