Chordoma Foundation

Register now for the 2017 Chordoma Community Conference

Registration is now open for the 2017 Chordoma Community Conference at MD Anderson Cancer Center. This year’s regional conference will feature The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center’s leading chordoma experts presenting on the latest updates in chordoma research and care.

In 2015, we began offering regional community conferences in partnership with leading medical centers in order to provide more opportunities for patients and caregivers to connect with each other and with the chordoma experts nearest them. While each of our conferences has unique offerings and different presenters, all Chordoma Community Conferences bring our community together to:

  • Learn about the latest advances in chordoma research and treatment
  • Connect with others whose experiences are similar
  • Understand the different ways we can work together to achieve a better future for those affected by chordoma

At the Chordoma Community Conference at MD Anderson, you will hear from chordoma experts in the fields of skull base neurosurgery, spine neurosurgery, radiation oncology, and medical oncology. There will also be opportunities to learn from specialists in palliative care, pain management, psychosocial health, and integrative medicine.

Topics covered will include:

  • Best practices for chordoma treatment
  • Recent chordoma research developments
  • Finding clinical trials for chordoma
  • Understanding drug treatments and immunotherapies
  • Survivorship care planning and improving quality of life

Remarkable progress is being made toward better treatments and better care for those living with chordoma. This conference will allow you to learn how the Foundation is working to improve the lives of those affected by chordoma as well as to share in the hope we have for the future. We look forward to seeing you there!
