Insights Public Lecture Series

These public lectures present up-to-date information, practical advice and answers from leading professionals in the field.

One Tuesday each month from 7pm-9pm, the Simms/Mann – UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology welcomes a leading professional who will cover cancer-related topics for patients and their families.

This year our lectures will be held in the new Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center (RRMC) Auditorium, B Level, Room B130, 757 Westwood Plaza, Los Angeles, CA 90095. UCLA parking is $12; wheelchair accessible. Attendees can park in the medical plaza or there is valet parking at the front of RRMC.

This series of lectures presents you with the opportunity to get up-to-date information, practical advice and answers to your questions. If you miss a speaker, presentation summaries and some videos are available in the Information Resources section of our web site. However, we recommend that you attend as there is often an active “Question and Answer” period at the end of the lecture which is not published on the web.
