Winthrop-University Hospital’s Advances in Cancer Care educational series will offer a free program, “Using CyberKnife® Radiosurgery in Early Prostate Cancer,” on Tuesday, March 31, 2009, at 7:00 PM. It will be held at Winthrop’s Community Outreach Center, located at 101 Mineola Boulevard, at the corner of Second Street in Mineola.
