2019 Chordoma Community Conference at Northwestern Medicine
More than 90 patients and caregivers from 21 states gathered in Chicago on June 8th for our 2019 Chordoma Community Conference at Northwestern Medicine.
Attendees heard from leading chordoma experts about the latest advances in neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and systemic therapy and connected with others who share similar experiences. Participants also had the opportunity to get their questions answered live during a 90-minute “Ask the Experts” panel and join small-group discussions on quality of life improvement led by pain and rehabilitation specialists.
Later in the day, attendees also heard from peers who spoke about their personal journeys with chordoma, sharing intimate insights about the challenges faced, friendships forged, and lessons learned along the way.
