Living With Melanoma Symposiums

In 2010, AIM at Melanoma began partnering with renowned U.S. cancer centers to provide patients with updates on melanoma research and emerging therapies. These symposium agendas quickly grew to include survivorship topics—those that address the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of patients. Today, AIM offers 10 Living with Melanoma symposiums across the country each year.

The symposiums cover a wide range of important topics. A typical agenda includes:

  • What’s new in melanoma treatment
  • Managing the side effects of immune and targeted therapies
  • The financial implications of cancer
  • Fertility implications of melanoma treatment
  • Physical rehabilitation after melanoma treatment
  • Genetics and melanoma
  • Questions from the audience

AIM’s symposiums also provide melanoma patients, caregivers, families, and friends an opportunity to connect with others who are facing similar challenges.

If you can’t attend in person, we offer free live streaming access for nearly all of our symposiums. Just register for the symposium, and you’ll receive a URL to join. Only a computer (or smartphone/tablet) and a reliable internet connection are needed to access the live stream.

What is Live Streaming?

Live streaming is the technology used to broadcast live video footage or video feed to an audience in real-time, over the internet. The viewing device can be a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, or digital screen at home, at the office – anywhere you have a reliable internet connection. Streaming transmits data – usually audio and video as a continuous flow – which allows the recipients to watch or listen immediately as the event is happening.  Read more about Live Streaming.
