Bladder Cancer Academy Presentations »
 


Dear Colleague,

In our shared goal to ensure that our members receive optimal education on advances in bladder cancer treatment and to optimize patient management, we are pleased to announce the 2017 Bladder Cancer Academy (BCA) program. This inaugural program is co-sponsored by LUGPA and MedReviews, LLC, publishers of Reviews in Urology,® LUGPA’s Official Journal.

Bladder Cancer Academy convenes the evening of Friday, June 9, and continues through late afternoon on Saturday, June 10, in Schaumburg, Illinois. BCA will present, discuss, and debate all available preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and management options for bladder cancer in a highly interactive format. BCA’s program will include didactic lectures and case-based discussions.

Presented at no cost to the attendee, BCA will cover round-trip air travel, one night’s lodging, and on-site meals for the duration of the program.

There will be 40 seats available to LUGPA members, on a first-come, first-served basis. To register for BCA, please go to bladdercanceracademy.com and click on Attendee Registration. Please register as soon as possible as space is limited.

Please review the preliminary course agenda. For questions or additional information, please contact Danielle Wagner, Associate Director of Program Management with MedReviews, via email at dwagner@medreviews.com.
