Edmonton Patient Information Session - Nov. 4

The Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada (CCAC) hosted a colorectal cancer Patient Information Session on November 4, 2011 in Edmonton Alberta. Three leading experts in colorectal cancer treatment presented content in the areas of colorectal surgical, medical, and radiation oncology to patients and caregivers at the Cross Cancer Institute. The experts highlighted the standards of care in the medical treatment of advanced colorectal cancer by bringing to the forefront the integration of personalized medicine and the biological treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer through the use of agents such as avastin and erbitux, which have been reported to improve patient outcomes. The session was very well attended and we extend sincere thanks to the experts who delivered both thoughtful and informative presentations.

Simultaneously the GC attracted thousands of visitors at the West Edmonton Mall.
