PROVIDING EDUCATION

QUEST STARLIGHT LECTURES INFORM THE PUBLIC OF LATEST RESEARCH

In 2021 , Quest for a Cure celebrated its 11th anniversary . Before COVID-19 , this public event was held annually , in person , on a Saturday morning , consisting of presentations and panel discussions by UH Cancer Center and community experts , as well as vendor exhibits where guests could receive a quick skin cancer screening or information about subjects like genetic counseling .

This year , due to the pandemic , the half-day event pivoted to a webinar format with an hour-long lecture series every month from April through July , and the name was changed to the Quest Starlight Lecture series . Topics include : Diet , Body Composition and Cancer , Brain Cancer , Cancer and Diabetes , and Pancreatic Cancer , with speakers from the UH Cancer Center as well as clinician partners from our oncology community . The overwhelming popularity of the event spurred an additional event in October 2021 focused on Breast Cancer .
Going forward , Starlight Lectures will be held quarterly , starting in February 2022 . If you would like to be added to our Quest mailing list , please send an email to quest @ cc . hawaii . edu . If you missed any of the past lectures , please visit our website at uhcancercenter . org / quest to access the archives .
