*Update: Watch the CTOS webinar on Desmoid Tumors*
The Connective Tissue Oncology Society (CTOS) – a prestigious organization of multidisciplinary sarcoma medical professionals – has named desmoid fibromatosis as the “Sarcoma of the Year” for their 2022 annual meeting this fall.
As part of this honor, the DTRF’s Executive Director Jeanne Whiting will present “Patients’ perspective: navigating the desmoid tumor journey” during a special webinar that will be aired by CTOS on Thursday, October 20th from 10am – 12pm ET.
The webinar will feature pre-recorded contributions from a patient advocate and 15-minute educational sessions on the pathobiology, pathology, and localized and systemic treatment options currently available for desmoid tumors. The webinar will finish with a dialogue between experts on current challenges.
The aim of the webinar is to bring all members to a good basic level of understanding of the “Sarcoma of the Year” in preparation for the CTOS Annual Meeting taking place a few weeks later in November.
Stay tuned for information about how to access this webinar.
We look forward to this opportunity to increase awareness about desmoid tumors and the patient experience with the global sarcoma community this fall.
