Review for Neuroendocrine Cancer Awareness Network Inc, Fort Mill, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I had the opportunity to attend NCAN's Chapter Leadership Training last week (04/13 - 04/15). It was an outstanding meeting in which I learned so much about the structure of a successful meeting. Most importantly, I gathered important leadership skills which I will utilize within our local group.

The agenda was well presented and followed by the speakers, presenters, patients and caegivers. The facilitator, Rick, kept the meeting running smoothly and adhered to the allotted time frame for each segment with breaks for meals. The sessions began and ended on schedule which requires skill when people are asking questions and sharing input. Rick managed to include everyone and each participant had the opportunity to be involved.

The presenters were very well prepared and knowledgeable in their area of expertise. As a patient, I am thirsty for information about Neuroendrocrine Cancer, a complex disease which is hard to detect, and treat. It is wonderful people, such as the speakers and presenters who participated in the meeting, that keep us informed and encouraged.

The meeting crystallized the importance NCAN plays in so many patients well being. Maryann and Bob Wahmann, the staff and volunteers are relentless in their passion to bring awareness to NET Cancer and to assist patients and caregivers on their NET journey.

The knowledge and skills I garnered at the meeting will be utilized to conduct our local chapter of NCAN support program and meetings in an empathic, knowledgeable and proffessional manner. The knowledge will be utilized to better meet each members needs and identify ways we can be of service.

Thank you to everyone that helped in making the meeting a success.
A special thanks to; Maryann, Bob, Patrice, Rick, Dr. WANG, Leigh Ann, presenters and all sponsors.
