The Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation is pleased to announce its 5th Annual Conference scheduled for January 31-February 2, 2018 in Salt Lake City.
Because patients living with cholangiocarcinoma have a direct stake in their own medical care and are in a unique position to provide input, CCF has expanded its Annual Conference to include programming that addresses questions and concerns that are important to patients and their families.
The programming on Wednesday, January 31st will be designed specifically for patients, families, and members of the cholangiocarcinoma community. All conference attendees are also welcome to participate in the medical and scientific sessions on February 1 & 2.
CCF is very pleased to be the recipient of an award from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) for the 3rd year in a row. These funds will be used to provide travel scholarships for patients to attend the Annual Conference and will cover costs for hotel, air and ground transportation.
