New Horizons GIST 2020 - GOES virtual

There is no translation available.

The corona virus has dramatically changed our private lives and our lives as Patient Advocates worldwide. So, also NEW HORIZONS GIST 2020 will be held virtually!

“Leaders” of your national “GIST-Patient Organization” are invited to the VIRTUAL NEW HORIZONS GIST Conference 2020, which will be held virtually but in live/real time as a half day program from September 10 – 12. The timing depends on your regional time zone.For example: If the meeting starts at 8:00 a.m. in New Jersey, it is 13:00 p.m. in London, 14:00 p.m. in Western Europe and 17:30 p.m. in India.

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!

Due to the high travel costs, only 40 - 50 participants could come together in previous years.

This year - virtually - there are no limits! Each organization is welcome to register several representatives! Only requirement: Participants must be able to communicate in English.

This is how we can take an advantage of the restriction in 2020:
Namely: To run the largest global meeting of “GIST-Patient Advocates” ever!

So please share this invitation with other Board Members or Leaders of your organization.

Many international - LEADING GIST-Experts will provide 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.

We also plan to have special "Patient Advocacy Sessions" (Capacity Building) for GIST and Sarcoma Patient Advocates later in this year. Three special online-sessions are planned for October, November and December 2020. More information will follow, but you can see the planned topics in the attached program already.
