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 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.

Woodstock, Dr. Pant is my brilliant, compassionate, utterly wonderful gynecologist oncologist. Dr. Donnelly was my radiologist and was warm and kind and wsa great about sharing information.  I don't know the other doctors. Thanks for posting this.

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.

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.

I wastched Dr. Alok Pant, who was first up. He gave an interesting talk on the literature about medical marijauna and cancer.

 

Thanks again for posting 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.

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.
