On Wednesday, March 4, 2015, the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation will host a session exclusively for nurses, as part of the International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma.  This session will be held at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda, USA from 10am to 12noon. 

As you can see from the draft agenda below, not only will your presence contribute to the prestige of the event, but it will create a unique opportunity for leaders of the field to learn about and discuss important new findings and potentially develop collaborations. 

As you may know, the International Symposium on Malignant Mesothelioma is a unique event.  It’s a true personification of the Meso Foundation’s mission, a bringing together of patients, caregivers, loved ones, physicians, researchers, clinicians, those who have lost someone – anyone affected by this disease.  This year , the 12th Symposium will be held March 2-4, 2015 in partnership with the National Cancer Institute.  All meetings will be held at the Natcher Conference Center in Building 45 of the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD.  All evening activities will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency Bethesda where accommodations will be available.  Please visit the website  for further details and to register.
