NYOH invites everyone living with cancer, their families, companions and caregivers to a FREE program on Saturday, May 11, 2019.
As the region’s largest provider of cancer care, NYOH is proud to host the sixth annual “Spring to Life” conference at the Albany Marriott Hotel. The morning session is designed for physicians and medical professionals, while the afternoon session focuses on “Hopefulness During Change, Aging, Illness and Loss.”
Afternoon – Survivors, Family, Friends and Caregivers
Our afternoon session will include a light lunch and exhibits. Dr. Ira Zackon, President of New York Oncology Hematology will host the program, which includes patient interviews and a panel discussion. The goal of the program is to create community dialogues on living with cancer. This year’s theme, “Hopefulness During Change, Aging, Illness and Loss,” is aimed at both survivors as well as their loved ones and caregivers.
Morning – Health Care Professionals (CME Credit)
As in the past, our morning session offers CME credit to health care professionals, with a program focused on Immuno-Oncology. Physicians from NYOH, Dana Farber Cancer Center and Roswell Park will discuss emerging research and treatments that are harnessing the power of our immune system in cancer therapy.
