On Sunday June 9th, 2013 the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Patient Advocacy Advisory Board (PAAB) held a patient education day at their annual meeting. The patient program is designed for patient and those who support them as well as the general public to learn more about molecular imaging and treatments. The day included a special NETs breakout in the afternoon covering specific imaging and treatments available for those with NETS delivered by international experts. NorCal CarciNet's Josh Mailman is the current chair of the PAAB and gave a keynote address at the conference.

We have linked the Agenda below to the online presentation. We hope you find the information useful.
