The 2021 Kidney Cancer Town Hall: Looking Back, Looking Forward

On Thursday, January 14th, KidneyCAN hosted a 2021 Town Hall Meeting to discuss the state of kidney cancer treatments and research as we begin the New Year. This was a patient-centered event, filled with lively discussion from our doctors and the patients and caregivers in the audience. 

KidneyCAN strives to give patients and caregivers the opportunity to learn from credible experts. We always want to know: What do you want to learn? What are your unmet needs?
