      I was wondering if anybody plans to attend the Boston Symposium.  I have information from them but wondered if anybody is going or has been in the past and found it helpful. Thinking maybe it might offer suggestions for next treatment if the 'ipi' doesn't work…looking for back-up plan.  Any recommendations or if you are going are appreciated. I would have to fly down from Plattsburgh for the day.

      Registration will begin at 8am and we will wrap up the Q&A around 4pm.  It will be held in The Shriner’s Auitorium – Blossom Street (across from Massachusetts General Hospital).

      Topics include:

      “Melanoma Landscape and Trends”

      “Tanning Beds, Sun Addiction”

      “Sun Protective Behavior”

      “I’ve Been Diagnosed with Melanoma, Now What?”

      “New Hope for Melanoma: Immunotherapy and Targeted Therapy”

      “Surviving Melanoma”

      “The Future of Melanoma”

      “Genes and Environment”

      “Cancer: How I Survived 3 Times – What You Need to Know”
