This year, in an effort to provide as many of you with the opportunity to attend, we brought the Symposium to Minneapolis, MN in June and are now coming to New York City in October! These one-day conferences are stand-alone events covering current treatment options, treatment advances, clinical trials and supportive care. See the full agenda here. Our impressive speaker roster, listed below, features prominent experts in the field who will not only provide innovative presentations for our attendees but will also be available for informal conversations between sessions.

The Symposium provides a unique setting for everyone in the mesothelioma community to come together and support one another.


Anyone wishing to learn more about mesothelioma is welcome to attend.

Our sessions are especially geared toward:

  • Patients
  • Caregivers
  • Family members of patients
  • Bereaved
    • The day after the conference, on Saturday, Oct. 6, we will hold a special Celebration of Life tribute ceremony in memory of those we have lost. More details to come.
