Virtual Journal Club, Episode 1

On June 28th 2018, the Thyroid Head and Neck Cancer Foundation in NYC hosted its first virtual journal club. The session was broadcasted to doctors around the world, who were able to virtually join the discussion and actively participate in the session. This journal club featured Dr. Alidad Mireskandari, Ph.D. and Dr. Christina Narick, MD, leading scientists from Interpace Diagnositcs, who presented the company’s novel thyroid cancer diagnostic screens and reviewed multiple case studies. Interpace’s screening tools utilize molecular and genetic markers to improve the diagnosis of thyroid cancers,.

The session was recorded and has been made available to the public. You can watch the presentation and download the associated material below. We hope that you find it both enjoyable and informative. Thank you!
