UCLA Health to Host Demystifying Cancer Event
Join UCLA Health for a Demystifying Cancer event on Thursday, April 18, from 5:30pm to 9pm at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.
Hear from UCLA experts as they demystify all things cancer for patients and their loved ones and share information about what a cancer diagnosis means, as well as details about the world-class treatment options available at UCLA Health Santa Clarita.
By attending the event, you will gain knowledge that can empower you to make informed decisions about your health, learn about lifestyle choices that may reduce the risk of developing cancer, understand the latest advancements in cancer research and treatment options and interact with healthcare professionals, researchers and experts in the field of oncology.
UCLA Health Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center speakers include Dr. Dennis Slamon, a world-renowned oncologist, cancer researcher and developer of Herceptin, the drug that changed the breast cancer treatment landscape; Dr. Alexander Black, a hematologist and oncologist with a background in molecular biology research in leukemia; and Dr. Rena Callahan (breast medical oncology); Dr. Omar Sahagun (radiology); Dr. Gregory Senofsky (surgical oncology); Dr. Nimit Sudan (medical/integrative oncology and hematology); and Dr. Michael Xiang (radiation oncology).
In addition to expert speakers, the program will include a welcome reception with UCLA Health Cancer Care resource tables, appetizers and dessert provided by The Old Town Junction and performance by the Guerra String Quartet.
Ranked number one in California for cancer care in US News & World Report's latest "Best Hospitals" assessment, UCLA Health offers world-class hematology oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, interventional imaging care, transfusions, access to clinical trials and cancer genetics - plus a full-range of wrap-around supportive services through the Simms/Mann UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology - all within the Santa Clarita Valley.

It was Chilly in Santa Clarita, but it was Over 170 Degrees Here
Last month, a freezing SCV saw frosts multiple mornings - but at The Sweat Shack in Old Town Newhall and Saugus, guests were still sauna'ing like the Finns in the steamy Kuuma sauna, where temps can climb over 170 degrees.
There's good reason to snuggle into a steamy sauna. The Finnish people are among the healthiest in the world - and most partake in steam sauna like The Sweat Shack's Kuuma sauna multiple times a week.
Frequent sauna users have shown to have a reduced mortality rate from all causes by a whopping 40 percent. And sauna use has been correlated to improved immune function, reduction in auto-immune symptoms, improvement in heart and lung function and much more.
The best reason to sauna? That's up to you and your health and wellness goals. But guests of The Sweat Shack share glowing reviews about stress and anxiety reduction; smoother, clearer skin; better-quality sleep; an increase in energy and sense of wellbeing and so much more.
