(CANCELED) 2020 Immunotherapy Patient Summit in Seattle

The CRI Immunotherapy Patient Summit in Seattle on March 7 is CANCELED.

As you may be aware, the situation regarding the recently identified coronavirus continues to evolve. In evaluating whether to move ahead with the CRI Immunotherapy Patient Summit, we have been consulting with infectious disease experts at our host institutions, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. 

Based on their latest advice and an abundance of caution, we have decided to cancel the event. We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this decision may cause and trust you understand that our top concern is your health and the health of our community. There has been a great deal of interest in this event, and we hope to reschedule for another date soon.
