Caring for Kids With Cancer Symposium

Saturday, October 19, 2019
Miami Cancer Institute, Café


 Symposium​ Overview

This symposium will highlight a spectrum of new developments and innovative advances in current pediatric oncology practice including proton therapy and immunotherapy. Content is equally relevant to the general pediatrician. The faculty — including leading experts from the top local and national cancer care institutions — will review the latest technologies and therapeutic approaches to challenging clinical problems, and will focus on evidence-based approaches to the special physical, emotional and psychological needs of pediatric cancer patients and their families.

Working in partnership to provide the best possible care for the communities they serve, two local leaders in healthcare – Miami Cancer Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida, the area's largest, not-for-profit healthcare provider, and nonprofit Nicklaus Children's Hospital, part of Miami Children's Health System and the leading provider of children's healthcare services in South Florida – are collaborating to improve healthcare through continuing education.
