Patient Symposiums

What Are the Benefits of Patient-Focused Educational Symposiums?

For some diagnosed with skin cancer, the journey is short because the cancer is detected early and removed entirely. For others, the journey can be long, overwhelming, and fraught with uncertainty. Regardless of which type of journey you’re on, AIM at Skin Cancer can help. Education about skin cancer can help you regain a sense of control over your life.

Education is pivotal in empowering you to make informed decisions about your treatment options. It allows you to understand the nature of your disease, its progression, and available therapies. Armed with knowledge, you can actively participate in discussions with your healthcare team and collaborate on personalized treatment plans.

Education extends beyond medical choices; it encompasses lifestyle modifications as well. If you are educated about nutrition and exercise, you can make better choices that support your overall well-being during treatment and recovery. If you understand and employ prevention and early detection measures, you can reduce your risk of developing a new skin cancer.

AIM’s virtual Living With Skin Cancer Symposiums are an opportunity for patients and caregivers to learn about skin cancer from medical professionals and fellow patients, caregivers, and survivors. These events are FREE and open to all.

• Educate yourself on how to recognize and manage the side effects of treatment.
• Learn about the latest research and most advanced treatment options for skin cancer.
• Discover strategies for maintaining quality of life for skin cancer patients and caregivers.
