New York, NY (Sept. 29, 2015) – On September 26, 2015, Logos Fellow Kristin Johnson served as a panel moderator for Stupid Cancer’s 2015 OMG! Summit East, in New York City. The OMG! Summit, hosted on both the East and West coasts annually, is one of the most influential and impactful health conferences for the young adult cancer movement worldwide. The Summit is part of several programs hosted by Stupid Cancer, the largest US-based charity that comprehensively addresses young adult cancer.
“I’m excited to be part of a panel that discusses such an important topic,” Johnson noted, “We hope to bring awareness to the public about the significance of sharing one’s cancer experience online, especially among the young adults.”
The panel, “Be Your Best Digital Self,” addressed important considerations, impacts, and outcomes of sharing – or not sharing – one’s cancer experience online. Expert panelists included, Kenny Kane, Co-Founder & COO, Stupid Cancer, Thea Linscott, Board of Directors, Stupid Cancer, and Rachel Becker, LMSW, Senior Manager, Programs, Cancer and Careers.
The panel was well received and will be replicated at the 2015 OMG! Summit West, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 21, in Orange, California at the UC Irvine Medical Center. For details, visit www.omgsummit.org.
