This event is geared toward health professionals, health professional students and community members/patients seeking to understand carcinoid and neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) in the context of their own professions and lives. Most carcinoid cancer and related neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are found initially in the gastrointestinal system, but can also be found in, and metastasize to, other parts of the body. A constellation of symptoms (e.g. flushing, diarrhea, asthma, congestive heart failure, abdominal cramping and peripheral edema) is often misdiagnosed for many years. As with all cancers, early detection leads to more successful outcomes.


This half-day event from 10 am to 2 pm is comprised of two interrelated sessions:

10 am – Noon

  • Brief History of Neuroendocrine Cancer
  • Signs and Symptoms
  • Early Diagnosis Opportunities
  • Tests/Assessment
  • Current Treatment Modalities

 Noon- 2 pm

  • Highlight of Patient Histories and Diagnoses
  • New and Upcoming Treatment Modalities
