Community Lunch and Learn- Lecture on Cancer– Addressing Palliative Care Needs of Children with Cancer

Please join the UNC Cancer Network for an online, interactive lecture with Elisabeth P. Dellon, MD, MPH. This lecture will define what palliative care for children is like before discussing specific palliative care needs of children with cancer and supportive care needs of their families.

Community Lunch and Learn lectures are geared toward cancer patients, survivors, family, friends, and care givers/supports but anyone interested in learning more about cancer is welcome to join us. Every lecture has a question and answer section at the end so feel free to ask the presenter for clarification or more information.
