Event description

Description

The Retinoblastoma Research Symposium brings together retinoblastoma survivors, family and friends of those diagnosed with retinoblastoma, health professionals and researchers.

The symposium is comprised of the following three events:

1. Retinoblastoma Family Gathering: a unique opportunity for knowledge dissemination and exchange. Families affected by retinoblastoma will be invited to attend panel sessions by retinoblastoma experts (i.e. patients, researchers and health professionals). Sessions will discuss advances in research, common questions about retinoblastoma and personal accounts of retinoblastoma experiences. There will also be a marketplace to allow various organizations to showcase the full range of supports and services available to retinoblastoma families.

2. Annual Canadian Retinoblastoma Research Advisory Board (CRRAB) Meeting: a multidisciplinary group, CRRAB, was developed to sustain patient engagement in retinoblastoma research. The first (December 2016) and second (December 2017) Annual CRRAB meetings brought together a highly successful group comprised of patients, family members, researchers, and health professionals. Existing and prospective CRRAB members are invited to learn more about the accomplishments of CRRAB and influence the direction of CRRAB for 2019. Coffee breaks and lunch provided.

3. Child Life Directed Children’s Program: coinciding with the family gathering and the CRRAB meeting, the program will include art activities that focus on eyes, sensory play and medical play. Snack and meals provided.
