Research Advocacy Network has instituted a new series to bring issues to the advocacy community to encourage discussion and exchange of ideas.
The series highlights expert speakers in some of the most important topics facing the cancer research community. One hour webinars feature the capability for participants to pre-submit questions for the speakers. Backgrounders and resources are offered for each topic. Each webinar is recorded and available for later playback for those that were unable to attend.
The series is funded by an unrestricted educational grant from Genomic Health, Inc.
Join us on February 21, 2012 for our next webinar when Dr. Larry Solin will give us results of the ECOG validation study that is leading to a new decision making tool for those diagnosed with Ductal Carcinoma in Situ (DCIS). Register Today!
