29 Oct SYSF Webinar: Merkel Cell Carcinoma
Date/Time: Wednesday, November 27, 2019 – 10am PT / 1pm ET
With Presenter: Marco A. J. Iafolla, MD, MSc, FRCPC, Medical Oncologist, Skin and GU Malignancies
Department of Oncology, William Osler Health System
Dr. Marco Iafolla, Medical Oncologist at William Osler Health System, will review the latest news, clinical data and other updates as they relate to the treatment of merkel cell carcinoma (MCC), a rare yet aggressive non-melanoma skin cancer. MCC develops in the merkel cells, which are found in the deepest areas of the epidermis and hair follicles. Merkel cell carcinoma can metastasize, or spread, to other parts of the body, making it metastatic MCC. Dr. Iafolla will provide an update on the science behind primary and metastatic MCC diagnosis, an overview of the disease features, staging and prognostication, surgery and treatment options including immuno-oncology for MCC, and the impact of all of this to patients. Facilitated by Kathy Barnard, metastatic melanoma survivor and Founder, Save Your Skin Foundation.
