Speakers Bureau

Through Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau, cancer centers, hospitals, cancer organizations, and other groups that are coordinating educational events can be connected with expert speakers on various cancer survivorship issues.

Triage Cancer’s Speakers Bureau also includes cancer survivors and caregivers who have experience sharing their cancer journey with a variety of audiences. If you are planning an event, it is a good idea to request speakers as early as possible. Some of our speakers are often booked months in advance.

Triage Cancer can also assist in the comprehensive coordination of educational events, in addition to providing speakers on specific topics.

Below you can learn more about each speaker, sort speakers by particular areas of expertise, and read about potential topics that you may want to include in your next event!
