    Just wondering if anyone from the forums will be attending.  I noticed they changed the venue to a conference room.

        Hi Val,

        The Mass General web site recommends the Redline Charles / MGH stop for the main campus.  The symposium is at 50 Staniford Street which is a few large blocks away.  The Blue line Bowdin Station stop is closer to 50 Staniford.

        What area are you coming in from.  If you are comming from almost any of the South Shore communities I'm driving to the city that way.  email me if you would like to discuss a ride in.  You just have to be tolerant of heavy community traffic that time of day.

        Hi Jerry,

        Well, that's good news…I will be getting on at Central Square (I think it's part of redline), I'll cut this info out and show to my girlfriend who lives in Cambridge. Thanks for the offer of a drive but will see you there.  Val

      I just attended the MRF symposium at Moffitt on Saurday. It was awesome. Dr Weber is my oncologist for my trial and he is awesome too!

        Glad you found the symposium informative, I am sure Boston's will be worthwhile too.  I have never had the privilege of meeting Dr. Weber but I know if ipi doesn't work that meeting up with him would be a goal to discuss potentials..he was kind enough to respond to me via e-mail twice…and he is such a busy man..  I am a snowbird and I'm only 1 1/2 hours away from Tampa in February/March.  Val
