This June, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting will showcase the latest findings in cancer research, including results about new treatments. Nearly 40,000 cancer specialists will travel across state lines, even country borders, to gather together and unpack these findings.
And you can learn about them too, without even leaving the couch. You can access what you need to know about the new findings and treatments within a few days after the meeting, free of charge.
Just register and tune in via phone or computer to the CancerCare Connect Education Workshop streamed live on Thursday, June 9—featuring brain tumor expert Dr. Jeffrey N. Bruce of the Brain Tumor Center at Columbia University Medical Center/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital.
No jargon. No fee. No travel. Just stay in the comfort of your home and learn teleconference style from Dr. Bruce and other panelists. The workshop, titled “Highlights From the 2016 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting,” will be held on Thursday, June 9 from 1:30–3 p.m. Eastern time.
During the workshop on June 9, you’ll learn the latest in cancer research. Having vast expertise in treating brain tumors, Dr. Bruce will discuss brain cancer and fill you in on new treatment approaches and results from relevant drug studies. Also, you’ll learn about clinical trials, where patients volunteer to participate in research studies evaluating new treatments not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use on the general public.
And if Dr. Bruce’s voice sounds familiar, that’s because he’s no stranger to these workshops. He’s been serving as an expert speaker for nearly 20 years and even explained highlights from last year’s ASCO Annual Meeting during a CancerCare teleconference—drawing a virtual crowd of more than 1,600! You can listen to that teleconference recording here.
Patients with cancer, their families and loved ones, along with caregivers and healthcare professionals, are all welcome to attend. CancerCare, a national nonprofit organization, routinely provides educational opportunities such as this, as well as financial and counseling support for patients and others involved in a cancer patient’s journey.
So, carve out an hour and a half on Thursday, June 9, to learn about the latest brain cancer research from Dr. Bruce at this free event. But if you can’t make it, don’t stress. Recordings are promptly made available on the CancerCare Connect Education website.
