Triage Cancer 2019 Conferences

Since 2012, Triage Cancer has been providing education on the practical and legal issues that may impact individuals diagnosed with cancer, as well as their caregivers, through events, materials, and resources.

To date, one of our most successful programs are our FREE conferences held three times per year. This series of educational conferences for individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, advocates, and oncology healthcare professionals offers valuable information about navigating practical cancer survivorship issues, from beyond diagnosis, into post-treatment survivorship. We’re also proud to say that nurses and social workers can also earn FREE CEUs at our conferences!

We’ve hosted our Triage Cancer Conferences in cities all across the United States to support our mission of making this information accessible to individuals everywhere! Furthermore, we also provide Travel Assistanceto individuals diagnosed with cancer, who would like to attend one of the Triage Cancer Conferences, but would not otherwise be able to attend because of the cost of traveling to the conference.

This month, 228 individuals registered for our largest conference yet in Chicago, Illinois on May 11th.

“I have been in health care for over 40 years and this is the most practical and relevant conference I have attended. The presenters, Monica and Joanna, were professional, engaging, and made the presentations interesting and informative. As a survivor, I wish I had the information during treatment. As an RN, there are multiple resources I now have for my patients. Great conference, thank you!” -Chicago conference attendee

Our other conferences will be held in:

  • Chapel Hill, NC on September 14, 2019
  • Houston, TX on September 28, 2019
