    Perry Helps Produce Annual International Conference

    CNHP's assistant director of marketing and communications, Roberta Perry, helped produce the 23rd International Thyroid Cancer Survivors' Conference that took place October 23 - 25. This year, as with many conferences planned for 2020, the event was moved to a virtual platform with greater success that anticipated. 

    More than 2,300 participants from 66 countries took part in this three-day event where 60 expert clinicians and researchers covered topics like "Novel Chemotherapies for patients metastic papillary, follicular, or Hurthle cell thyroid cancer," "Racial disparities in thyroid cancer," "Building a National Consortium to advance the care of pediatric patients," "Active surveillance as a treatment option. Percutaneous alcohol ablation of nodules. The role of Radio Frequency Ablation, and other thermal ablation techniques, in the management of thyroid cancer." Where the difference between a live and virtual event was felt most was in attendees' ability to talk to the best care providers and other survivors from around the world after each session, during lunch, dinner or in the hallways.

    The more than 40 sessions were moderated and cohosted by volunteers, like Perry, who also led her own session with 50 participants on meditation. A special word of thanks goes to Linda Wilson, PhD, for her counsel in producing the best possible webinars on the Zoom platform.

    CNHP's Board of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would like to acknowledge Indigenous Peoples' Day, held on the 2nd Monday of every October.

    Indigenous Peoples' Day recognizes that the Americas were not “discovered” but colonized. While the United Nations declared August 9th as International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, individual states and cities in the United States have been replacing Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples' Day. The National Museum of the American Indian is helping us about Rethinking How We Celebrate American History.

    We invite the CNHP community to reflect on the land that we currently occupy, originally home to members of the Lenape tribe.

    Drexel University will be closed on Monday, October 12 in observance of Indigenous Peoples' Day.
