Hello,
 
Just wanted to share with anyone who might be interested.  Our doctor, Dr. Pal at City of Hope, is doing a patient forum to discuss ASCO data from clinical trials and emerging therapies.  I don't know who all is in Southern California, but this will likely be a worthy event to attend.  Here is the info:
 
Date/Time:
 6/18/14 from 5-6 pm
 

Location:

City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center

1500 East Duarte Road

Duarte, CA 91010

Phone: (626) 256-4673

 

Event description:

"Breakthroughs in Kidney Cancer Therapy from ASCO 2014”

 

Dr. Pal will provide an update on key abstracts from ASCO 2014, focusing attention on data pertaining to PD-1 inhibitors and other emerging classes of therapy.

 

Presented by:

Sumanta K. Pal, MD

Assistant Professor and Co-Director, Kidney Cancer Program

Department of Medical Oncology & Experimental Therapeutics

 

Just thought I would share.

I was just wondering if you are sure this event is happening? Or does anyone else know? I can't find it on the COH Biller calendar of events website. I want to drive up to it, but hate to drive 2 hours in rush hour traffic if it's not going to happen. Thanks.

I was able to reach the Biller Resource Center this morning and confirmed that even though it's not on the calendar it is happening.

I'm also a patient of Dr. Pal. I didn't know this was happening. Appreciate hearing about it. It's on my calendar. I had missed Dr. Figlin speaking about the same thing last week at Cedars. This will give me a chance to hear about it. Maybe I'll see you there?

I wonder why all patients weren't notified? How did you find out about it? From Dr. Pal during a visit?

Hi Todd, 

 

Doc Figlin mostly talked about immunotheraphy and it was a good opportunity to ask questions and get clarification on things. I felt like I had read about most of the information he talked about on the internet already but he explained it very well and my husband is the patient anyways so it was good for him to hear the information.
