Fireside Chats

The Fireside Chats with the Office of Community Outreach and Engagement are free monthly sessions intended to educate community audiences on cancer, research, and health-related topics presented by experts in easy-to-understand language followed by a discussion that allows for community members to engage in casual conversations with experts from the University and/or the local community with a moderator.
