PATIENT EDUCATION SEMINARS

The Patient Education Seminar Speaker Series meets monthly, typically the 2nd Tuesday of each month, from 11:30am to 2pm.  We feature weekend "Brunch & Learn" meetings throughout the year as additional seminars and for those who cannot attend during the week.  Each meeting features a guest speaker of interest to neuroendocrine cancer patients and their caregivers.  LACNETS meetings offer an opportunity to meet other neuroendocrine cancer patients and to share in the community.  A light lunch and beverages are provided. Meetings rotate throughout Los Angeles, including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, UCLA (Westwood Campus), City of Hope, and Tower Cancer Research Foundation. 

LACNETS seeks out presenters with expertise in oncology, gastroenterology, radiology, nuclear medicine, clinical trials, pain and symptom management, surgery, psychiatry, genetics and pharmacology. Speaker Series topics are selected to be informative and timely and to address patient concerns in areas including treatment, insurance coverage, sleep, nutrition, and patient and caregiver resources. 

To date, LACNETS has presented over 125 leading NET experts on a range of topics highly relevant to NET patients. 

Selected presentations are available HERE and the complete archive may be accessed on the LACNETS YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
