MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA, UNITED STATES, August 16, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cancer Commons, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers advanced cancer patients and their caregivers, today announced an upcoming educational webinar focused on helping a lay audience understand molecular testing, the strengths and limitations of each kind, and how testing may be used to understand and help with their particular cancer.
Testing Matters—Understanding Cancer Biomarker Testing and How It Applies to You, will be offered virtually on September 14, 2022, at 12:00 PM PT / 3:00 PM ET.
Navigating a cancer diagnosis and making care decisions can be overwhelming—particularly for those affected by advanced or metastatic cancer. Cancer Commons helps patients and caregivers cope with uncertainty and establish a sense of control by educating clients about their cancer and finding customized treatment options beyond the standard of care. They also assist clients with understanding the different kinds of testing that may help determine treatment options and monitor their cancer during and after treatment.
In the upcoming webinar, Cancer Commons Scientists Kaumudi Bhawe, PhD, and Adrienne Nugent, PhD, will present the different types of biomarker testing, for whom tests are suitable and helpful, and information on how, when, and where to access testing—all in approachable, plain language.
This is the third event in Cancer Commons’ Pat Looney Educational Series for Client Empowerment, a quarterly series focused on providing critically needed education and highly requested information to the cancer-impacted community. Future webinars in the series will provide information and resources about pancreatic cancer, clinical trials, and significant developments related to various types of cancer.
