About this Event


The annual Patient Sarcoma Patient Education Conference is designed for patients and their loved ones who are interested in learning more about sarcoma. This interactive, virtual event brings together OHSU sarcoma experts from multiple specialties to answer your questions and share information on the basics of sarcoma and research advances. The live program will also feature insights from a patient panel with members of the nursing and social work teams. The live session will end with a brief introduction to simple exercises that sarcoma patients can do at home to improve their physical well-being during and after treatment.
