WHAT: Acquired Resistance in Lung Cancer Patient Forum
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015
WHERE: Marriott Waterfront San Francisco, 1800 Old Bayshore Hwy, Burlingame, CA 94010
WHO: ALK, ROS1 & EGFR lung cancer patients and their caregivers
Researchers are making advances in molecularly-driven lung cancer seemingly every day. The need for patient education is on-going and ALK+, ROS1, and EGFR lung cancer patients actively seek it.
They will find it at GRACE’s 2015 Acquired Resistance in Lung Cancer Patient Forum. The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at the Marriott Waterfront San Francisco.
Patients and their caregivers who attend will hear directly from leaders in targeted therapy research. In addition to presentations and question and answer sessions, attendees will have many opportunities to approach the faculty to speak with them directly. An evening reception after the event will enable additional face time and give attendees – many of whom know each other from online support groups – a chance to meet in real life.
