Join us for an informative discussion with Joseph Fiorillo, MD., about immunotherapy. Dr. Fiorillo says immunotherapy helps teach the body how to fight and cure cancer. It is an exciting approach benefitting the scientific advances of the 21st century.
About Our Speaker: Dr. Fiorillo is a member of the Oregon Cancer Foundation Board of Directors and is an oncologist at the Willamette Valley Cancer Institute & Research Center.
He is a senior investigator in a Phase 3 Immunotherapy Vaccine Trial for Prostate Cancer, and the lead on multiple other trials. Dr. Fiorillo is also excited by the improving immunotherapy options for malignancies such as melanoma and lymphoma, as well as furthering similar therapeutic vaccination strategies for breast and ovarian cancers.
Joe is loved by his patients. He has a team approach where treatment decisions are made together, Physician and Patient.
“Having trained and participated in many clinical trials at the National Cancer Institute, I am hopeful that, within our lifetime, we will be able to cure most cancers,” he says, “and those we cannot cure, we will turn into manageable illnesses.”-Joe Fiorillo
