On September 26th and 27th, the Cure Project participated in another edition of the congress All Together Against Cancer in São Paulo. In addition to installing a booth, where people could learn more about the CURE, on the 27th representatives from LACOG – Latin American Cooperative Oncology Group talked about the epidemics situation of cancer and described the benefits and the ways used to conduct clinical essays in Brazil. The panel “Benefits of Scientific Research and Innovation in Oncology to Cancer Patients” gathered a large number of experts in Oncology, such as Dr. Carlos Barrios, Dr. Sergio Simon and Dr. Fabio Franke. In addition to them, we counted with the presence of Bob Chapman, representative from the American Cancer Society, the coordinator of the Cure Project and psychologist Fernanda Schwyter and the patient Ana Cristina Angrisano, who gave her statement about her participation in a clinical research.
That was one more opportunity to discuss and disseminate the importance of supporting the clinical research in Latin America.
