A Kidney Cancer Educational Symposium

A Kidney Cancer Educational Symposium

Presented by the Judy Nicholson Kidney Cancer Foundation and UF Health Cancer Center

Does kidney cancer run in my family? This question crosses the minds of many people diagnosed with kidney cancer and their family members. This fall, the Judy Nicholson Kidney Cancer Foundation and Penn’s Abramson Cancer Center will provide facts and insight to help you better understand this
complex topic and make decisions.
We hope you will join us on October 1st when Dr. Katherine Nathanson, MD, Pearl Basser Professor for BRCA-Related Research and Deputy Director of the Abramson Cancer Center, answers the question:
What do My Genes Tell Me About Kidney Cancer?
Dr. Nathanson will break down risks of kidney cancer that runs in families in language we can all understand. She will present the very latest research in the fiield of kidney cancer genetics, oering
information to share with family members and inform decision making.
This is just one of many important topics to be addressed at the 2nd Annual Celebration of Hope: A Kidney Cancer Educational Symposium. The virtual morning program also includes presentations on surgery, locally advanced disease, risk of relapse, the impact of COVID, non-clear cell cancer, clinical trials, nancing, and options for treating cancers with combination therapy or those that do not respond to immune checkpoint or anti-VEGF drugs.
