2015 Living With Cancer Symposium

On November 19, 2015, the Reed Foundation and UAB's Comprehensive Cancer Center partnered to offer the 1st Living with Cancer Symposium at UAB. We invited experts in their areas of cancer survivability to speak, and invited healthcare professionals, cancer patients and caregivers to attend. Healthcare professionals were eligible for continuing medical education credits. We were encouraged and inspired that more than 55 people attended and are looking forward to planning the Living with Cancer Symposium 2016.
