Duke Cancer Institute’s Office of Communications is now hosting Facebook live panel discussions on a monthly basis. These discussions, known as #LunchAndLearn, a Recipe for Knowledge, usually take place at the Duke Cancer Center Patient Resource Room at noon on weekdays.
Broadcasts are 15 minutes long and mostly feature oncology experts and their patients. We also host panel discussions highlighting upcoming cancer-related events and beneficial programs and services.
Panels consist of one moderator, two experts (clinical and/or research) and a patient. Although broadcasted live, videos remain on the DCI Facebook page indefinitely for viewing by future visitors.
Participants should be on-site by 11:45 a.m. for a briefing. Clinicians and researchers are asked to wear lab coats. Props that aid in greater understanding for our lay audience, are encouraged. Facebook live panel discussions can also be broadcasted from our community cancer centers in North Durham and Wake County.
Since the October launch of #LunchAndLearn, more than 12 panel discussions have been featured on facebook.com/dukecancerinstitute. Examples of recent Facebook live panel discussions include:
