HOW WE'RE DIFFERENT

CPIC is not a treatment facility. We're an independent research organization. Although we work closely with treatment centers, CPIC does not have doctors or nurses on staff. This means we’re free to select the top oncology specialists locally and nationally to present from across leading health systems. 

REGISTRATION FEES
$50
Continuing Education Unit Fee: $35 for Registered Nurses

Online registration closes February 27.

PRESIDIO OF SAN FRANCISCO
Coming to terms with a cancer diagnosis is difficult. The conference location, surrounded by nature with striking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, provides a welcoming space to hear difficult information and invite conversation. As one attendee noted in her program evaluation, “The location is so inspiring, it restores my soul.”

PARKING: Complimentary valet parking will be available
