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.

We host frequent webinars featuring our experts to provide information and education on cancer-related topics.

Our cancer education series offers virtual lectures, panel discussions, and presentations by cancer specialists, healthcare professionals, and survivors, who share the newest information on prevention, diagnosis, treatment options, research, clinical trials, and other resources. 

Our survivorship learning series focuses on the unique issues related to 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. For more information, please call 833-263-2266, email, or subscribe to our newsletter.
