2015 Patient Symposium

This program, held on April 18, 2015,  is dedicated to Rob Bohning, a member of our thyroid cancer community who passed away this Spring.

We thank Rob on behalf of the thousands of patients in our community that he touched with his endless strength and endurance, with his inspiring words and his honesty about his journey living with Thyroid Cancer.

In the spirit of this day of knowledge and empowerment, we honor Rob and send our thoughts to his family
