Partnering with Your Team to Select Treatment for Newly Diagnosed Melanoma

Live Date and Time: Wednesday, January 25 at 10:00 AM ET

Washington, DC (January 18, 2023) – Treatment options for patients with metastatic melanoma have expanded beyond surgery in recent years to include non-surgical options, such as immunotherapies and their combinations, leading to improved outcomes and better quality of life for patients.

Join an expert panel of dermatology and oncology specialists live on Wednesday, January 25 at 10 AM ET (and later that same day on-demand) for a 1-hour online presentation: “Partnering with Your Team to Select Treatment for Newly Diagnosed Melanoma.” Panelists will help patients and caregivers understand how new immunotherapy combinations work, side effects associated with treatment and develop strategies to maintain quality of life. Patients will also be empowered to communicate with their healthcare team and participate confidently in their own care.

Among the topics to be discussed:

  • How is melanoma diagnosed and what are the stages?
  • What is the role of biomarker testing?
  • How do dermatologists and oncologists work together?
  • How does surgery impact the quality of life?
  • What is immunotherapy?
  • What side effects patients can expect during treatment?
  • Why study new combinations?
