ROCHESTER, N.Y., September 8, 2022 (Newswire.com) - GRYT ("grit") Health, a patient experience and research company, is hosting the fourth annual Global Virtual Cancer Conference (GVCC) from Nov. 2-5, 2022. GVCC is the original digital cancer conference created by a team of cancer survivors and caregivers. GVCC 2022 will address topics critical to improving cancer-related outcomes and experiences with interactive sessions encompassing cancer prevention, timely topics for patients and survivors, resources for caregivers, and a day of sessions for social workers and healthcare professionals.
"I am beyond thrilled for this year's Global Virtual Cancer Conference," said Hailey Johnston, Empowerment Manager at GRYT Health. "I can't decide if I am most excited for our speaker lineup, the opportunities we have for peer connection or our new prevention and early detection track, but it is going to be so different from anything we've done before and in all the best ways."
Conference highlights include:
- Three different tracks of sessions, including virtual sessions tailored to patients/survivors, caregivers and supportive loved ones, and, new this year, early detection/prevention that provides education and connection for those wanting to learn more about the importance of early screening and related topics
- A dedicated day (Saturday, Nov. 5, 2022) with live sessions specifically crafted for cancer care professionals
- Participating organizations sharing up-to-date information and resources in a virtual-friendly and welcoming environment
- A dedicated session entirely in the Spanish-language
- Live Spanish translation and American Sign Language (ASL) interpreting for all sessions

"Now in its fourth year, this year's GVCC is bigger and better than all of the previous years combined," said Uma Rana, Senior Vice President of Empowerment at GRYT Health. "There's truly something for everyone in this year's session agenda and we can't wait to see everyone connecting on a personal, human level that our platform helps facilitate."
