CML Advocates met in Budapest (2006)

new_horizons_2006.jpgThe "4th CML and GIST New Horizons in Treating Cancer summit" for patient group representatives was held in Budapest from 23rd to 25th of June 2006. The summit brought together 70 patient group representatives from 26 countries.
The three days of the summit consisted of medical update presentations by CML expert Prof John Goldman, four plenary sessions covering a range of topics from advances
in science, to global cancer politics. The plenary sessions were supported by a series of workshops encouraging participation, discussion and sharing of ideas in smaller, more interactive groups. The conference in Budapest was held for the 4th time, with the previous three being held in Switzerland, Italy and Irland. The annual event is being organized and funded by Novartis, with CML and GIST patient representatives being on the advisory committee to make sure patient's needs are met.
