Mark A. Lewis, MD, medical oncologist, will be the featured guest for Luncheon with the Experts on Thursday, March 18, 2021 from 12 noon to 1 pm, Eastern Time. Dr. Lewis is Director of Gastrointestinal Oncology at Intermountain Healthcare in Murray, Utah. His interests include young-onset cancers and hereditary cancer syndromes, shared decision-making, and patient-physician communication. Dr. Lewis is active in the SWOG Cancer Research Network, a clinical trials cooperative group created by the National Cancer Institute; within SWOG he chairs Adolescent & Young Adult (AYA) Oncology. He serves on the Communications Committee of NANETS, the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society, for which he is Past Chair and on the Board of Directors of the Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Foundation.
Dr. Lewis has a very unique story for a NET expert! During his oncology fellowship, he diagnosed himself with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) and so has a particular and deeply personal interest in hereditary tumor syndromes. Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors were found when Dr. Lewis had an endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) in 2009. In 2017 he underwent a Whipple surgical procedure to remove his tumors.
