Perlmutter Cancer Center Educational Events

The topic of cancer can feel overwhelming to anyone affected by it. It’s important to get helpful information from a reliable source about cancer, its treatment, and how to cope.

Our educational forums cover a range of cancer-related topics, including understanding cancer, preventing cancer, living with cancer, and life after treatment. Some of our programs are tailored to patients and caregivers, and others are geared toward members of the general public who have not yet been affected by cancer.

These events at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center provide valuable information about steps you can take to reduce the risk of cancer and how to recognize cancer signs and symptoms.
