In-Person & Virtual Conference, 7.25 ACCME Credits

Program Overview

IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
The application of immunotherapies and cellular therapies in the treatment of cancer have provided tremendous insight into the functions of the immune system. Immunotherapies for solid cancers have greatly enhanced the care of many patients, but have also caused issues in the form of immune-related adverse events, with a multitude of acute and chronic autoimmune complications for patients. Similarly, cellular therapies such as CAR-T cell therapy have significantly improved the treatment of many hematologic malignancies, but have also revealed the potential for these treatments to cause cytokine storm and other severe complications. Research and development of these treatments have taught us a great deal about immune system regulation and dysregulation in general, providing insights into the pathogenesis of autoimmune disease and even stimulating exploration of treatments like CAR-T cell therapy in lupus and PD-1 agonist treatment in rheumatoid arthritis. In this CME course, we bring together the leading national and international experts from oncology, rheumatology, and multiple other specialties to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest insights into diagnosis, management, and future areas of exploration in the realms of cancer and autoimmune disease.

Video Access

Following the program, all registrants will have access to lecture video recordings for ONE month.
