WHAT: Mayo Clinic is hosting a grand opening event for Mayo Clinic Building – Phoenix, home to the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center and the new Mayo Clinic Proton Beam Therapy Program — the first such cancer treatment program in the Southwest. The new Proton Beam Therapy Program will begin treating patients in mid-March. Reporters can tour the facility and take photos.
Proton beam technology delivers radiation therapy in a way that offers the potential for fewer side effects and higher cure rates, often for patients whose cancers cannot be treated safely any other way.
WHERE: Mayo Clinic Phoenix campus – 5777 E. Mayo Boulevard (56th Street and Highway 101)
WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 18, 6:15 p.m. MST
