Dear Friend,

In this month's issue of the CLRC Chronicle, you will find:

 

What's New at the CLRC!

Boston Conference PartnersThanks to everyone who helped make our Boston Cancer Rights Conference a success!

Last week, the CLRC held its first Cancer Rights Conference of the year in Boston, MA as a pre-conference session to the Association of Oncology Social Work's conference.  We had over 140 people register from 32 states, and the feedback we've received has been excellent.  Huge thanks to our sponsors for making this exciting event possible!

The CLRC Attends AOSW Conference
The CLRC participated in the Association of
Laura AOSWOncology Social Work's (AOSW) annual 3-day conference in Boston last week. The CLRC spoke to and shared resources with an estimated 250 participants about its free services that social workers and their patients can take advantage of.
 
Additionally, CLRC Staff Attorney Laura Riley, Esq. co-presented a poster session at the AOSW Conference with Maria MacWilliams, a Bilingual Patient Services Coordinator at National Marrow Donor Program's Be the Match. The poster explained the Spanish language webcast that the two put together explaining the options for health insurance in the U.S., along with other legal and financial assistance resources for people preparing for transplant.

The CLRC Presents Webinar Series on Genetics and the Law


Yesterday, CLRC Skadden Fellow and Staff Attorney Anya Prince, Esq. presented the first of a four-part webinar series on the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).  Over 170 people registered for yesterday's webinar, providing an overview of GINA. The four-part webinar series will examine GINA and other laws that protect individuals with genetic predispositions to cancer from discrimination.  CEUs are available for genetic counselors.  For more information about the webinar series, click here.  To register, visit our events page.

About the CLRCCLRC Logo 2010

The Cancer Legal Resource Center (CLRC) is a national, joint program of the Disability Rights Legal Center and Loyola Law School Los Angeles. The CLRC provides free and confidential information and resources on cancer-related legal issues to cancer survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, employers, and others coping with cancer.

A cancer diagnosis can carry with it a variety of legal issues, including insurance coverage, employment discrimination, access to health care, and estate planning. These legal issues can cause people unnecessary worry, confusion, and stress, and can be overwhelming. When these legal issues are not addressed, people may find that although they have gotten through treatment, they have lost their homes, jobs, or insurance.
 
Visit www.CancerLegalResourceCenter.org for more information about cancer-related legal issues and services provided by the Cancer Legal Resource Center.
