A Cure in Sight is joined by Dr. Richard Carvajal for a medical webinar-style discussion on: 

- how to understand the data behind a clinical trial?

- What the decision making process can look like for managing surveillance, ahead of metastatic discovery, or after and what components go into that process?

- Recommended scan protocol from uveal melanoma oncology teams and how they differ and why

 

Come prepared with questions and an enlightening and empowering discussion.
