"City of Hope has been awarded an R25 grant to educate oncology nurses about geriatrics.

The course will be held at the Sheraton Universal Hotel in Universal City, California from July 9-11, 2018.

During this free, 2 ½ day course, a team of three nurses (nurse manager, nurse educator, and direct care nurse) from each institution will gain new knowledge and skills in geriatric oncology with an ultimate outcome of developing a plan to implement the knowledge acquired into their home setting.

I have attached our flyer to include a live link to the application for the NIH R25 grant supported conference, Geriatric Oncology: Educating Nurses to Improve Quality Care.

Additional  information about the conference may be found at www.mycarg.org/r25.

The deadline to apply for the program is May 18, 2018.

Please invite your colleagues to send a team to the conference.

We would also appreciate if you may forward our flyer to other colleagues that may be interested in attending as well.

Thank you so much for helping us get the word out!

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Warm regards,
