During childhood we are required to get many vaccinations and immunizations to prevent diseases and spend our days in school among other children. These protective immunizations have stopped diseases that plagued the world hundreds of years ago, and now Dr. Vincent Tuohy, Ph.D. has made clinical research advancements toward preventive vaccinations or immunizations that may help adult women be able to work ahead of time before problems arise in breast and ovarian cancer and they will no longer have to deal with medicinal and hormone treatments as well as surgical removal of cysts and tumors. At 11am after all the race events Dr. Tuohy will be giving a speech about all of the advancements he has made recently in potential immunizations for breast and ovarian cancer.
