The 2018 North American Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (NANETs) Annual Multidisciplinary NET Disease Symposium, October 4-6, in Seattle, Washington, was notably underlined by the drive of collaboration across the globe. Ron Hollander, INCA Immediate Past President and Teodora Kolarova, INCA Executive Director had the pleasure of presenting the INCA poster “Unmet needs in the global NETs patient community from the perspectives of patients, patient advocates and NET health professionals” at a very intense and engaging forum. With a total of 110 poster presentations from 11 countries featured on the electronic poster boards, the INCA poster entertained significant interest by healthcare professionals, researchers, medical students, patient advocates and the pharmaceutical industry.

Apart from a very insightful scientific experience, the 2018 NANETS Symposium offered INCA the valuable opportunity to connect with NET leaders and potential collaborators, and catch up with some of the INCA members in attendance – representatives of Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, NET ResearchFoundation, PheoPara Alliance, and AMEND.
