This CME accredited program was developed to provide a forum for discussing and presenting pre-clinical, translational and clinical research and thereby improve understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life of patients suffering from cancer as well as explore emerging diagnostic tools and patient-specific treatments for cancer. Lymphedema, a significant complication of cancer treatment, will be addressed and the current treatment of lymphedema will be updated. Many doctors are still very under-educated about the lymphatic system in general and, specifically, about the problem of lymphedema, which has lead to inconsistencies regarding the appropriate timing of intervention and what forms of treatment should be the standard of care. The educational objectives of the Lymphedema mini-symposium is to help participants to Identify secondary lymphedema resulting from cancer treatment and methods to overcome lymphedema.
Target Audience: Based on the attendance history we anticipate 200-300 participants to the Cancer Metastasis Symposium, a friendly atmosphere with ample opportunity to network and meet with every attendee with a potential interest in your product or services. These attendees will be primarily physicians (65%) specializing in surgery, oncology, molecular imaging, plastic surgery, radiation oncology, thoracic medicine with the remainder a mixture of predominately PhD/scientists from both academia and biotechnology as well as a smaller groups of attendees who are in training, regulatory or from industry. The PATIENT SUMMIT/Lymphedema Following Cancer Therapy: Treatment Controversies Mini-Symposium, to be held on Saturday, will attract an additional audience of therapists and nurses interested in lymphedema as well as patients and patient advocates over and above the Symposium registrants. Please review the program and the information in this prospectus and contact Joan Oefner to discuss your participation. We are happy to customize a sponsorship package based on your company’s specific needs and requirements. Contact: Symposium Manager, Joan Oefner at email@example.com.
