Dear UNC Lineberger Cancer Network Friend,

Happy New Year!!! I hope that your holidays were restful and celebratory, and that the year ahead is full of promise and opportunity.

Our team is glad to be back together, after some much-needed time to recharge our batteries. We are starting to get settled into our new space (details to share next month) and planning for a new and improved studio for live and recorded events.

I do have some sad news to share. If you were fortunate enough to join Lynn Filip’s “Pet Therapy in Oncology” lecture back in January of 2022, I am certain that you will remember her therapy basset hound, Herbie. Sadly, Herbie passed away in December at the age of 16. Herbie brought great joy to patients around the state, and he will be dearly missed. I feel very fortunate that Lyn could share highlights of Herbie’s impact with us before his passing. You can still take the online course or just view the video.

Please find details on our January lecture lineup (free, with various types of professional education credit) are listed below:

  • Wednesday, January 18th at 4:00 PM: Our APP Lecture – The Value of Integrative Medicine in Oncology Care – Denise Spector, PhD, MPH, ANP, RYT, PA-C – NCPD/CNE Credit Available
  • Wednesday, January 25th at noon: Multidisciplinary/Multimodality Management of Locally Recurrent Rectal Cancer – Jose G Guillem, MD, MPH, MBA – CME, NCPD/CNE, ACPE, ASRT, & CTR Credit Available

You may register for any or all of these lectures on the UNCLCN Learning Portal.

Recordings are available for those lectures that already took place in our UNCLCN Video Library.

As always, if live lectures do not fit your schedule, check out our free self-paced, for-credit lectures.

Always quality oncology education. Always free. We hope to see you there.

Wishing you continued strength and fortitude in these challenging times,

Tim Poe
