Our first ever TGCT Days of Learning (TDOL) conference was on Sept 21st from 4-8pm in NYC.
A TDOL is a free half day event to help TGCT patients and caregivers learn more about this rare disease, find support, and enhance their knowledge base to help them navigate their journey.
TGCT Support has a simple purpose: to improve treatment of a rare disease — TGCT — and to help those living with it. To do this, TGCT Support focuses on three key areas: research, patient support & education, and advocacy, which lay the foundation of our mission to ensure the quality of life of TGCT patients through a comprehensive approach connecting individual patients’ needs, the worldwide community of TGCT advocates and the global health and research environment. During this conference, Dr Stern will cover background biology and history of the disease, Dr Schwartz from Columbia Presbyterian Hospital will cover systemic therapies and clinical trials, and Dr Prince and Healey from MSKCC will cover Pre-Operative Treatment and Surgical Management of the disease. Dinner is included and the event is FREE to anyone who wants to meet and learn.
For those that cannot come, do not worry! This will be the first of many.
Thank you to our sponsors, Daiichi Sankyo, SynOx Therapeutics and Deciphera, that made it possible
