Hello folks...

Last month's meeting featured Dr. Trevor Royce, an outstanding facility oncology physician from UNC with a compelling discussion on bladder sparing treatment for muscle invasive disease.  The question / answer session could have gone on all night.   

We also had a visit from Caitlin who is addressing Bladder Cancer awareness via social media. Lots of members had a bit of facetime in front of the camera.

This month, we will be treated to a talk about the American Institute of Cancer Research (AICR) 2018 updated guidelines for cancer survivors from Jennifer Spring, RD, CSO, LDN.

Jennifer Spring is a registered dietitian, licensed in North Carolina, and she is a Certified Specialist in Oncology nutrition. She has practiced as a clinical dietitian for over 14 years and has specialized as an oncology dietitian for the past 12 years. She currently practices with UNC Healthcare as a team member of the Comprehensive Cancer Support Program at the NC Cancer Hospital in Chapel Hill.

It's going to be another fun and informative night.. Come on out!
