Head & Neck Patient & Caregiver Education Symposium
5th Annual Head & Neck Cancer Patient & Caregiver Symposium
April 23, 2022, in-person
This was a hybrid event to accommodate those who did not wish to - or were not able to - attend in person while we invited back those who are able to join us in person. All CDC guidelines were strictly followed to keep everyone healthy. Masks were required.
This special day provided an opportunity for attendees to hear from our head and neck cancer specialists, patients, and their families as they shared their knowledge and experiences in hopes that they might help those touched by this disease to live their best life possible. The agenda included informational lectures and panels of providers, patients and caregivers.
We hope you were able to join us - whether online or in-person - for what previous attendees have often described as an "empowering experience".
