We know that public education is a proven weapon in the fight against cancer, so we actively seek your help in raising cancer awareness across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Here are some things you can do now to keep your community informed:

Speakers Bureau

Invite a Simmons expert to share the latest in cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment at your next school assembly, company “Lunch & Learn,” cancer support group meeting, or educational event.

Our physicians, researchers, and cancer support specialists can join you virtually or in person - depending on your needs and current COVID guidelines - to share information on topics such as:

  • Cancer 101
  • New discoveries in preventing, diagnosing, and treating specific types of cancers
  • Coping with stress in healthy ways
  • Cancer screening recommendations for men and women
  • How to stop smoking to prevent or beat cancer
  • Cancer-fighting foods and healthy eating tips
  • Exercise as medicine for cancer prevention and survivorship
  • Genetic testing for inherited family cancers
  • Vaccinations that can prevent cancer
  • Clinical trials: What are they? Why should I join?

Simmons’ Speakers Bureau service is free, and presentations can be tailored to your group’s interests.

Please submit your speaker request here. For questions, call 833-722-6237.
