Educational lectures are an important component to our program providing information ranging from nutrition, to social security benefits, to cancer specific topics, amongst many others. While some topics adhere more to cancer patients, some are very resourceful to caregivers as well. All lectures are free and open to members and non-members, and take place here at the Clubhouse.
Thanks to a grant recently awarded by the Cancer Support Community (CSC), we now have the capability to record and share our lectures online making this educational information more accessible. Our first two pilot lectures were streamed live on our Facebook page.
Sponsored by CSC, we live streamed Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Clinical Trials on June 21st with speaker, Bobby Green, MD, SVP Clinical Oncology, Flatiron Health, Board Member, Community Oncology Alliance and Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Bone Health on July 17th with speaker Brian Golden, MD, NYU Langone Medical Center.
With this new capability, we plan to reach more individuals who are in need of information, but are unable to travel to the Clubhouse. Eventually our goal is to have all of our lectures available online as a resource to the cancer community.
