A Free, Live Online Event on Wednesday, June 20, 3:00-4:00 pm EST
Last Spring, we were pleased to create an interactive resource for people living with Carcinoid Syndrome with our partner CancerCoachLive – we’ve teamed up again to create a new virtual education program that will provide a detailed walk-through for patients and caregivers that explains how a diagnosis is reached, gives lifestyle tips about what to eat when living with Carcinoid Syndrome, and how to medically manage it over time.
On Wednesday, June 20, from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm Eastern Standard Time, we’ll be joined by medical experts from the University of Pennsylvania, patient advocate Grace Goldstein of the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, and a patient who lives with Carcinoid Syndrome. You can send us questions starting today on the QBoard, and ask more during the live, online event.
