Each session will feature a Living with Lynch patient video followed by live discussions around each topic. Learn more on the Living with Lynch website (a collaboration with the Colon Cancer Coalition, another NCCRT member) and register for first the first virtual Patient Community Discussion tonight at 7:00pm ET.
