Community Forum Set

The Union County Health Department is hosting a community forum on pediatric cancer Mar. 01. The Mar. 01 forum will examine the differences between childhood and adult cancers while also taking a closer look at cancer in our community. Speakers will present the latest research about the incidence and causes of common pediatric cancers.

The forum will be held Mar. 1 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Union County Veterans Memorial Auditorium, 233 W. Sixth St, Marysville. Local doctors Justin Krueger and Laura Sorg will present research from pediatric oncologists on how often cancer occurs in children and what we know and do not know about the causes. Staff from the Union County Health Department will also share information on the number and types of pediatric cancers that have been reported in Union County.

“We want parents and our community to have access to the same knowledge we have,” said Jason Orcena, health commissioner for the Union County Health Department. “The forum is an opportunity to build a common understanding of pediatric cancer in our community”  

Orcena stated the health department has received questions about different pediatric cancers over the years. In the winter of 2017, significant discussion about the topic arose on social media. According to Orcena, the health department has been working with cancer experts to gain a better understanding of pediatric cancer, and is hosting this forum as an opportunity to share with the community what has been learned.

For more information about the community forum, please contact the Union County Health Department at 937-642-2053.
