Header NHGIST 2020 Berlin

The corona virus has dramatically changed our private lives and our lives as Patient Advocates worldwide. So, also NEW HORIZONS GIST 2020 was held virtually! 
As many of you have already experienced: NEW HORIZONS GIST is a great opportunity where “GIST Patient Advocates / GIST Patient Group Leaders” from around the world are coming together - this time virtually!

The first ever virtual New Horizons GIST Patient Advocacy Meeting has come to an end - we had three intensive half days with brilliant speakers and a lot of interesting questions from the community. Many international - LEADING GIST-Experts have provided insights into GIST basics including diagnosis, treatment, care and research issues as well as more in-depth knowledge and latest developments and most pressing questions. At the maximum we had 63 participants which is the highest number of attendees at a New Horizons GIST meeting ever!

We also plan to have special "Patient Advocacy Sessions" (Capacity Building) for GIST and Sarcoma Patient Advocates later in this year or early 2021. More information will follow shortly.
