About This Presentation

For those who have undergone chemotherapy, many questions about long-term effects may surface, even several years after treatment. Are there long-term complications of chemotherapy and if so, what are they? Are there interventions one can use to treat or prevent potential complications?

Join us for an evening educational seminar to learn answers to these questions and more.

Makiko Ban-Hoefen, M.D.

Dr. Makiko Ban-HoefenDr. Ban-Hoefen has been strongly committed to the Western New York community since her undergraduate years at Cornell University, where she volunteered and delved into scientific research in the field of signaling cascades and oncogenes. Since then, she has completed all of her training in the Rochester area, where she can practice medicine close to both her family and the patient population for which she has long been long devoted to. While she was chief resident, she enjoyed teaching other residents and stimulating their enthusiasm to improve patient care.

“I find that while I take care of cancer patients, I can also sustain being hopeful by doing research projects in the field of hematology and oncology.” She has published her research and observations in various benign and malignant hematological disease processes. She has also presented those findings at the American Society of Hematology on several occasions in the years past.

Ask what fuels Dr. Ban-Hoefen to work harder, and she will respond by stating that her two motivating factors are: (1) the smiles and laughter of her three children, and (2) the joy of using her knowledge in the field to help her patients.
