The Duke Center for Brain and Spine Metastasis presents its third annual Colloquium.
This year's event will be both in-person and virtual and will feature keynote talks by medical experts and patient advocates, along with case-based panel discussions on emerging and pressing topics in the care of patients with brain and spine metastasis.
The Colloquium is designed to increase competence and provide the most up-to-date, evidenced based review of the biology of brain and spine metastasis, including leptomeningeal disease (LMD) as well as clinical care of these patients.
Registration is $50 before March 17, 2023, and $100 thereafter.
