WEBINAR: Childhood Cancer Survivorship, Transitioning to Adulthood

REPOST from September 25th webinar originally broadcasted, September 25th, 2019

Childhood cancer advocates, families, researchers, and survivors are invited to join us for this Childhood Cancer Awareness Month event. We’ll have a robust discussion about the challenges facing childhood cancer survivors as they transition out of pediatric care and into young adulthood.

SPEAKERS:

Gregory Aune, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics at UT Health San Antonio’s Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute

Dr. Aune battled Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as a teenager, an experience that inspired him to become a pediatric oncologist. Today, he is a national and international leader in the field of childhood cancer survivorship and a staunch advocate for more funding and improved care of the nation’s 500,000 childhood cancer survivors.

Julia Rowland, PhD
Senior Strategic Advisor at Smith Center for Healing and the Arts

Dr. Rowland was formerly the Director of the Office of Cancer Survivorship at the National Cancer Institute, and she is widely recognized as a national and international scholar, researcher, and leader in the psychosocial aspects of cancer care broadly and cancer survivorship specifically. She was also the recipient of our 2018 Rosen Research Award.
