Lake Mary, Fla. (March 15, 2018) —After years of providing similar conferences in Europe, Talos Health Solutions is launching its first online conference in the United States – the American Cancer E-Conference.
The event runs from March 15-31 with a focus on post-traumatic growth. The event will feature multiple experts in the field from across the country.
The conferences will be free.
“Cancer patients and caregivers need support and education from healthcare and oncology experts,” said Jérôme Pradier, CEO of Talos Health Solutions. “We are thrilled to deliver reliable information through free e-conferences in the United States to help more people affected by cancer.”
Post-traumatic growth focuses on life after the initial trauma of being diagnosed with cancer. It involves discovering personal strength and a powerful recognition of life’s meaning, and resilience.
During the cancer journey, there are many needs that are not addressed in the traditional cancer arena. Aspiring to reduce and eliminate the chaos of cancer requires new systems and strategies to invigorate transformation for the intellect, heart, and soul of cancer patients and caregivers. ACEC’s team is helping to focus on those needs.
“Patients, families and caregivers will have the opportunity to hear experts at their leisure, covering issues associated with their cancer diagnosis, treatment and life after cancer,” said Dr. Mikal-Flynn, professor at Sacramento State and president of the American Cancer E-Conference Scientific Committee for Post-Traumatic Growth. “This vital information will inform, guide and support all affected by this condition.”
Topics covered include:
- How to speak with your doctor
- The importance of physical activity
- Pain management
- Navigating through the cancer journey.
- How to find meaning and experience growth after cancer.
Talos’ success in Europe has involved partnering with government institutions and receiving support from various sponsors. Events there included breast cancer, addiction, rheumatoid arthritis, HIV, and other topics.
The company, with its headquarters in Belgium, is now starting its footprint in the USA with the recent relocation of its CEO to the Orlando area.
Future events in the United States will continue to deliver more support and educational information through many e-conferences. Since cancer and other health challenges are global, Talos has the vision to expand in many countries and continents.
“Success in Europe has already happened,” Pradier says. Our official launch in the United States—including the forthcoming first e-conference in March—highlights our testament to give reliable information to cancer patients and caregivers internationally.”
