DCI Patient Forum (5.19.20)

DCI Virtual Patient EventWe recognize that our cancer patients and their caregivers may have concerns about accessing the care they need while COVID-19 remains present in our community.

With this in mind, Duke Cancer Institute has organized a special virtual forum for patients and their loved ones — to be held on
Tuesday, May 19, at 4 p.m. via Zoom — on the safety precautions we have put in place to protect them and our team members and our efforts to minimize the spread of infection during this time.

A panel of experts will discuss the importance of continuing to receive care and answer specific questions related to cancer diagnosis, prevention and treatment during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The panel includes:

  • Edwin Alyea, MD, Chief Medical Officer for Duke Cancer Institute,
  • Cheyenne Corbett, PhD, LMFT, Director, Cancer Support and Survivorship, Co-Director, Center for Onco-Primary Care
  • James Abbruzzese, MD, Chief of Medical Oncology
  • Peter Allen, MD, Chief of Surgical Oncology
  • John Kirkpatrick, MD, PhD, Clinical Director of Radiation Oncology
  • Becky Smith, MD, Infectious Disease Specialist at Duke Health

Mark your calendars and REGISTER NOW. (Space is limited)
