Emerging Technologies in Childhood Cancer Survivorship Research Conference

Sponsored By: Northwestern Mutual Foundation

Presented By: Texas Children’s Hospital Cancer and Hematology Centers

This symposium will bring together leaders in the field of childhood cancer survivorship, and will feature moderated research presentations, an expert panel discussion, and an opportunity to interact with a variety of mHealth applications and equipment relevant to survivorship research. Abstract presentations will be given by leading investigators conducting local and national survivorship research that utilizes mobile health and other innovative technologies. We expect this symposium to foster meaningful research collaborations and the development of new protocols that leverage this technology to improve the detection and treatment of late effects related to therapeutic exposures in survivors of childhood cancer.
