KU Medical Center's Barbara Atkinson Presented on Cancer Research & Treatment in Kansas

Wednesday September 29, 2010

From the 09-29-10 K-State Collegian:

Rural communities are more likely to smoke, leading to more lung cancer fatalities.

This was one of the topics Barbara Atkinson, executive vice chancellor of the University of Kansas Medical Center and executive dean of the KU School of Medicine, touched on during her speech in Forum Hall last night.

Atkinson was the keynote speaker at “The Future of Cancer Research and Treatment in Kansas,” sponsored by K-State’s Johnson Center for Basic Cancer Research.
