In our ongoing work to empower patients last September, we attended the European Society of Medical Oncology (ESMO) conference in Madrid. Our Communications team recorded numerous interviews with leading oncologists to get updates on research in breast cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, and melanoma. We also talked to patient advocates to find out how they are helping patients with social media and how they engage with other advocates and health professionals at international conferences. All these interviews are being posted on our partners sites –Patient Power, Oncology Tube…- and distributed through social media and patient groups.

Here are some of the videos we recorded:
