Virtual Head & Neck Cancer Symposium 2021
Our annual fundraiser symposium is back! This year, Burgundy & White continues to support the head and neck cancer community by facilitating learning and spreading awareness through our interdisciplinary symposium. It will be virtual via Zoom, on Saturday April 17th, 2021. Registration is free/ donation-based. There will be presentations and live panel discussions with MD/otolaryngology, dental surgery, engineering research, speech pathology, and a young cancer survivor based in Australia. Please visit the 'Symposium 2021' page for more information on registration (link below, or event tab above).
Every year, we host an interdisciplinary symposium to facilitate learning, spread awareness, and expand our outreach for the head and neck cancer community. You can expect a knowledgeable, diverse panel of healthcare workers, researchers, and cancer survivors. Symposium attendees are typically healthcare professionals, students, patients, and caregivers. The event is our largest fundraiser effort each year! We hope you will join us for this opportunity of learning and sharing.
Our "Resources" tab offers a variety of information that patients, caregivers, professionals, and students may find helpful along their journey. We provide free access to updated research articles, podcasts, videos, and more, all in one space for your convenience.

After a cancer diagnosis, patients are sometimes
left with little to no information about what to expect.

are invaluable to cancer survivorship" - Wendy Liang, founder (2019)
