Fireside Chats

The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement recently launched a new virtual series called Fireside Chats with the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement. The Fireside Chats are free monthly sessions intended to educate community audiences on cancer and health-related topics presented by experts in easy to understand language. 
Experts give flash talks on a particular cancer or health-related topic followed by a discussion that allows community audiences to engage in conversation and ask questions "fireside chat style." Some sessions will include a discussion with a panel of experts.
