Marina Symcox, PhD represented GIST Support International at the Novartis Patient Summit held June 29 - July 1, 2007 near Frankfurt, Germany.  The theme of this year's meeting was "New Horizons in Treating Cancer."  About 35 delegates representing GIST patient organizations from around the world  (plus additional delegates representing CML patient  groups) attended the meeting.  

Marina made a well-received presentation  on the topic "meeting the challenge of coping with chronic disease" -- an area with which she has personal experience as a 10-year GIST survivor.  To view a pdf of her slides click here.

Shown here with her long-time friend Zavie Miller of Canada, Marina was clearly enjoying the meeting, and GIST Support International is grateful for her time in representing us.
