Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center

Speakers Bureau

As part of our ongoing effort to help educate the Dallas-Fort Worth community on today’s important medical and health topics, the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center has developed a Speakers Bureau program available to local organizations. 

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s world-renowned physicians, researchers, and health care professionals can share useful advice and medical breakthroughs with audiences at luncheons, dinners, assemblies, meetings, or any other gathering where a cancer expert is needed.

Cancer is a topic that affects everyone – our Speakers Bureau speakers will provide the latest details on cancer prevention, early detection, and new treatment options to keep our community organizations informed.
