The MRF is excited to partner with Clinical Care Options (CCO) and the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower to provide a FREE innovative program featuring two simultaneous educational sessions - one dedicated to the education of patients and caregivers, and one dedicated to healthcare providers. The patient and caregiver portion will be coordinated by the MRF and the clinicians-only session will feature interactive case discussions on best practices for advanced melanoma, coordinated by CCO and Annenberg. Then, in a joint afternoon session for both clinicians and patients, the discussions will focus on the latest developments in melanoma clinical research, plus an interactive panel discussion on communication challenges and overcoming barriers to optimal care.

This symposium is free and breakfast and lunch will be provided. A draft agenda and event flyer can be found below.

Event Details: Saturday, February 1, 2014 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm (Local Time)

Faculty: Jeffrey S. Weber, MD, PhD (H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center) & Antoni Ribas, MD (University of California, Los Angeles)
