Join Us at the Ottawa GIST Day of Learning

GIST Sarcoma Life Raft Group Canada is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the GIST Day of Learning in Ottawa.  This is a one-day conference that provides education and support for people living with Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumour (GIST), which is a soft-tissue sarcoma that can occur anywhere along the GI tract.  The Day of Learning will cover many aspects of living with and understanding GIST and provide an update on investigational new drugs being evaluated in clinical trials for GIST.  It will also provide a great opportunity to connect with other GIST patients, caregivers and the speakers.

The Day of Learning is open to people who have GIST,  family members,  caregivers, healthcare providers and anyone who wishes to learn more about GIST. 

There is no charge for attending the GIST Day of Learning.
