H3 Second Annual Open Panel Discussion about Cancer


Our last open discussion provided powerful insights and conclusions about the possibilities of better treatments, prevention, and hope towards the cure. Now it is time for us to put into practice the discussion results and to further explore how we can make a difference in the cancer field. It is clear from the results of the last discussion that the emphasis needs to be on personal responsibility: “It begins with me”.

The H3 Open Discussion panelists will focus on the following questions:


  1. 1.      Prevention: Although we cannot always control what happens to our health, we have a personal responsibility to control risk factors of which we were previously unaware. Therefore, what can an individual do to be conscious about their health choices, lifestyle, and how self-healing begins within each of us?


  1. 2.      Diagnosis/treatment: What are some of the innovative and cutting-edge treatments that are being considered for cancer treatment, such as immune therapies and vaccines? Is chemotherapy obsolete?


  1. 3.      Medical System: What are the problems with the current medical system/doctor education/hospital environment/insurance and how can an individual better navigate through these systems and advocate for the best care possible?



H3’s Founder and Director Janinha Piazzetta is moderating the discussion panel. Each participant will address the 3 questions above from their unique perspective. The audience will have an opportunity to participate with questions towards the end.
