    Virtual Event on Gynecologic Cancer

    Thanks for letting us know about this event. I looked at some of the previous years' PowerPoint slides that were online to get a feel for the type of sessions typically included in the event. Even without the corresponding audio, several of the older sessions looked quite interesting. So I expect the upcoming event will have some good sessions as well.

    You're welcome everyone.  I

    You're welcome everyone.  I don't know anything about this hospital or these doctors but am on a number of mailining lists from breast cancer in 2015 and there was a link about gynecological cancers in one of those that mentioned this and I thought why not!   @RainbowRita - I copied and pasted and was surprised it came out perfectly.  I still can't figure out to how to insert the link so you can click on it.

    It is sponsored by the Lurie Cancer Center

    out of Northwestern, the #1 cancer center in Illinois, 6th in the nation, also earned an NCCN Comprehensive Cancer Center dessignation. They will have cutting edge information about the topics offered, I am sure.

    Thanks again for posting this, Woodstock.

    Missed it too!

    Darn it! I missed watching this too. I really wanted to watch it, but totally forgot about it until it was too late. I had a lot going on that week so I should have put a reminder on my calendar. Sure hope they hope they post it on their website later. I sure am getting frustrated by these "chemo brain" episodes. I know that it will probably improve over time, but I hate how things just "drop out" of my memory for days at a time. I guess I have to do a better job of writing things down or using the calendar on my phone. Sure as heck can't rely on my memory these days! ;-)

    From the beginning I knew I'd miss this due to a family wedding, so I also hope they'll post it for later viewing.

    Saw some of it

    I was able to watch some of it and it was good.  It was nice to be able to ask questions.  They said it would be available to view later, as a taped event.  I haven't been able to find a link so I emailed them. I'll post the link when I get it.

    Thanks for the link

    I wasn't able to watch the presentations when originally scheduled as I've been heads-down finishing a big client project the last few weeks. So I'm glad to know that they've posted them online. There were a couple that I was interested in.
