Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center organizes and sponsors opportunities for CME throughout the year. These events are open to staff and community health professionals. Recent offerings include:

Community Education

We offer a variety of education opportunities to the community:

  • The Office of Community Outreach and Engagement: Offers an array of programs to patients, families, caregivers, and community members. These programs educate the public about cancer-related topics such as lowering your risk, screening, and treatment. We recognize our obligation to serve and educate the public, and ensure that new discoveries and knowledge are disseminated at the community level. Our goal is to teach people about cancer, while also guiding and supporting them as they put what they learn to use.
  • Patient services: Cancer and its treatment can affect all aspects of a patient’s life. That’s why Sylvester offers supportive oncology services to ensure patients and their loved ones receive comprehensive, multispecialty care that addresses their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs during and after cancer treatment.
