MELANOMA & SKIN CANCER INFORMATION SESSIONS

Cliquez ici pour le Français

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