The Monthly Drip

The Monthly Drip is a monthly webinar hosted by Teen Cancer America to provide current education on AYA related topics for healthcare professionals. This is an opportunity to share expertise, current research, AYA program development and services, etc. to impact the AYA community at large. Because this is a diverse group of physicians and allied healthcare professionals, we hope the topics discussed will be a benefit to varying disciplines in support of AYA cancer care. These presentations average about 45 minutes with reserved time at the end for discussion and the presentation is recorded via zoom and shared with those that were unable to attend. These have been a great tool for hospitals looking for continued education on AYA specific research and services.
