UCSF 8th Annual Gynecologic Oncology Symposium

This year we will take our event online with a theme of managing wellness and building endurance in the context of a gynecologic cancer diagnosis. We will explore the latest in scientific research, in-treatment alternatives and survivorship strategies with speakers, breakout groups and answers to your questions. Join us too, before the main event, for an evening of connection, engagement and healing including a beautiful sound bath meditation; hosted by the Friends' Circle.

Open to all members of the public and is FREE. Registration required.
