ICARE Genetics Case Conferences

5.15 Case conference

ICARE Genetics Case Conference with Special Guest Speaker: Dr. Jeffrey Weitzel, Chief, Division of Clinical Cancer Genetics, City of Hope, Duarte, CA

As part of our educational outreach efforts, ICARE hosts an hour-long monthly web-based genetics case conference. Providers from across the country involved in cancer risk assessment practices regularly attend and present cases for discussion.

Who can access the ICARE monthly case conferences?

  • Providers who actively recruit patients to ICARE
  • Please note: Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for providers who are unable to recruit to ICARE due to institutional constraints, but actively participate in/contribute to case conferences
