Children and Cancer: An Atlantic Forum

PanCareLIFE Research Manager Dr. Julianne Byrne (Boyne Research Institute) attended the Children & Cancer Forum last week in Washington, DC. The conference featured presentations and discussions by clinicians, researchers, parents and survivors, on topics ranging from immunotherapy to big data to survivors’ stories to underwriting.  The conference was sponsored by the AFLAC insurance company and was held in the Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue, within sight of the US Capitol building.  Congressman Brian Higgins, chair of the House Cancer Caucus, spoke about how policy-makers like him need to be informed and educated about issues related to childhood cancer and survivorship.  The full video of the conference proceedings is available here.
