VIRTUAL MELANOMA INFORMATION SESSIONS

Cliquez ici pour le Français

The Melanoma Network of Canada’s Patient Information Sessions are a series of presentations by leading Canadian oncologists, dermatologists, surgeons, psychologists and more on the latest in melanoma treatment options and support services. These presentations offer patients, their families, friends, and health care providers not only with the most up to date information on the disease, but a chance to speak to doctors and experts, while connecting with peers. The Patient Information Sessions are free of charge and offered across Canada.

“I learned more at this meeting than I have in the last four years of treatment. Thank you for arranging this and giving us renewed hope.”
