Join neuroendocrine tumor (NET) patients in New York City on Sunday, November 10, 2019 — NET Cancer Day — for a unique opportunity to have lunch with two medical experts. Share your experiences with others who have similar concerns and hear from physicians on issues ranging from NET cancer treatments and surgery to follow-up testing and new developments. This special program was initiated and is sponsored by the Big Apple NETs support group, in collaboration with the Carcinoid Cancer Foundation. There is no charge for the luncheon thanks to the generous sponsorship of Lexicon Pharmaceuticals.
The experts for the luncheon are Dr. Edward M. Wolin, Director of the Center for Carcinoid and Neuroendocrine Tumors at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, Professor of Medicine (Hematology and Oncology) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Dr. Celia M. Divino, Chief of General Surgery and the Stanley Edelman Professor of Surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine of Mount Sinai. Participants will hear from and interact with these expert physicians in an informal setting.
This special luncheon will take place in a private dining setting at Selena Rosa Mexican restaurant in Manhattan (1712 2nd Avenue, between 88th and 89th Streets). Interested individuals must register by email or telephone on a first-come, first-served basis, with preference given to first-time attendees. A maximum of 35 participants can be accommodated.
World NET Cancer Day is an annual event held on the 10th of November, created to increase awareness of neuroendocrine cancers and to provide a voice to the NET community for improved diagnostics, treatments, information, care and research. The day was created by the International Neuroendocrine Cancer Alliance (INCA), a global organization comprised of patient and patient advocate organizations.
