Education Committee Members

This committee was organized to provide our membership the educational resources needed to stay informed on the latest developments in cancer cachexia. The committee is made up of early-career faculty members dedicated to the study of cancer cachexia mechanism and therapeutics. An online seminar series that brings together one hundred of our community members each month was launched in the fall of 2020. More recently, the committee broadened its communication with our society members by introducing a Society Slack to facilitate communication between members.
