Groups for XXX Poster Walkthroughs

GRASP brings scientists and patient advocates together for a personalized discussion about a scientific poster. Less like a presentation, and more like a conversation, advocates are encouraged to share their experiences as people living with or caring for someone with this disease.

*PLEASE CHECK BACK CLOSER TO THE EVENT FOR YOUR ASSIGNED GROUPS AND POSTERS

Below are the group pages for REGISTERED attendees. For scientists or poster authors, please contact grasp@graspcancer.org to register. For patients, please register at our Advocate Registration.

If you are an ADVOCATE, you can check your member dashboard to see the group(s) for which you registered
