We continue to present final videos from this highly anticipated annual event, the 2020 Targeted Therapies Patient Forum.

This year's live-online presentations and discussions were launched by our Event Chair, Luis E. Raez, MD FACP FCCP, Member of the GRACE Board of Directors, President of the Florida Society of Clinical Oncology (FLASCO), and Chief Scientific Officer & Medical Director at Memorial Cancer Institute.

This day-long event featured top oncologists in their field, presenting the most current and emerging information in targeted therapies for patients and caregivers living with lung cancer.  In this video from the EGFR Breakout Session, Drs. Jared Weiss and Zofia Piotrowska answer questions from attendees of the event.

For this video, they discuss whether a tissue biopsy can play a role in disrupting the cancer and cause it to spread.

 

We thank our sponsors for their support of this event! AstraZeneca, Lilly, Novartis, Takeda, Foundation Medicine, Boehringer Ingelheim, Blueprint Medicines and Genentech
