We started our patient support group in April 2001, and we are still going strong! Our speakers are all leaders in their field and we have an array of topics to help keep patient, family and friends educated and empowered while either looking for a correct diagnosis, support after surgery or the best options for treatment.

Parking in the rear of the building is free with validation. Parking on the street meters are free after 6:00 p.m., but always double check the signs that are posted.  Light dinner and snacks and refreshments are served for many of our patients drive quite a distance from Los Angeles and traffic can be a challenge.  Friends and family are welcome!
