Conference Overview:
The Winship Melanoma Symposium is 1-day live symposium will specifically address educational gaps pertaining to the multidisciplinary treatment of patients with cutaneous malignancies. Experts in the field will discuss recent advances in the diagnosis and prevention of cutaneous malignancies, including diagnostic challenges in the community setting. Optimal strategies for administration of regional therapy and management of nodal and in-transit disease will also be addressed. In addition, current and emerging therapeutic options for patients with metastatic disease will be discussed, including surgery, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and adoptive cell therapy. Recent clinical trial data, important ongoing clinical trials, and current treatment recommendations will be highlighted. This engaging program will feature didactic lectures and faculty-led case discussions. These components will provide participants with expert insight on how to apply recent data to their clinical practice and how to better coordinate different disciplines into the multidisciplinary care of cutaneous malignancies, with the goal to improve patient management.
