Second Annual Cancer Rehabilitation Symposium

Symposium

This symposium will provide healthcare professionals with new or enhanced knowledge that can be implemented in the evaluation and management of cancer and treatment-related impairments. Emphasis will be placed on the latest advancements in the management of adult and pediatric cancers and how to address their rehabilitative needs. This two-day symposium includes morning plenary sessions followed by break-out sessions in the afternoon that attendees may select during registration. Included in this program will be special “Meet the Experts” panels with both physicians and therapists to discuss program development with time for Q&A.
