Webchat Anyone? OncoLink hosts monthly webchats on a topic of interest where local experts take your questions. Join us on April 14th, 12:30-1:30 PM EST for a fun, interactive webchat! We will be testing your cancer IQ and busting common cancer myths. Heard a cancer rumor and wonder if it is true? Submit it to our experts live or in advance.
To participate in any chat, just go to OncoLink and look for a link for the chat in the center blog box. From that page you can post questions, read along with the chat (or the transcript after the event). No registration or sign up is necessary, so come on over! Look for our May 20th chat, which will be live from the Abramson Cancer Center Melanoma conference and focus on sun safety & melanoma treatment.
