EHE Foundation joined over 30,000 cancer experts from around the world in Chicago, IL in early June to learn of the latest clinical cancer research impacting patient care. The theme of this year’s conference is Caring for Every Patient, Learning From Every Patient.
EHE Foundation board members and staff participated in the patient advocate track and were given access to all scientific sessions and viewed posters focusing on sarcoma and EHE research. In addition, the Foundation attended the 2019 Annual SARC meeting – a four-hour meeting that includes scientific translational medicine presentation on new emerging science in the field of sarcoma and engages the sarcoma investigator community in the review of ongoing clinical research and discussion of opportunities for future research.
Also during ASCO, The EHE Foundation organized the annual Medical Advisory Board lunch meeting. Big thanks to AD Board members Drs. Okuno, Wilky & Burgess for the robust discussion with updates on fundraising, current research project portfolio, patient services, programmatic activities, and ideas for future directions.
