A KidneyCAN Town Hall
Tuesday, July 19th
6:00-7:00 pm ET
(followed by optional patient social)
Webinar via Zoom
Many patients are surprised to be offered a trial as an option for their first treatment. At large cancer centers, you may be offered a trial for any needed treatment change. Your oncologist may even suggest travel so you can access a new therapy years before it is FDA-approved.
Join us to learn the basics of the clinical trial process and why trial participation can make sense anywhere along your treatment journey. Consents, endpoints, patient rights, and how trial participation affects your clinical care are all part of this discussion with two leading clinical investigators.

An informed patient is an empowered patient.
We at KidneyCAN know how challenging it can be to keep up with research developments and how they could impact your treatment options. We hope the ideas presented in our Town Hall help you as you work with your doctor to manage your care for kidney cancer.
