Webinars and Teleconferences

Webinars and teleconferences are hosted by different organizations on different topics. Most webinars last about an hour, are scheduled on a set date at a set time, and require pre-registration. Many are then offered later in an archived version so that someone may watch and/or listen to the taped version of the earlier webinar.

Our calendar will list webinars and teleconferences on the date they are initially offered. Refer to the resource list (to the right) for a list of archived teleconferences and webinars.

    Insights into Naturopathic Medicine

    April 14, 5pm-6:15pm

    Zoom Audio/Video (Login Information in Registration Confirmation)

    Join us for an enlightening session on a naturopathic approach to cancer care. Dr. Dave Allderdice will focus on the 3-pronged approach to support cancer patients from diagnosis, through treatment, and into survivorship.

    There will be a Q&A segment after the presentation.

    About the Presenter:

    Dr. Allderdice graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in 2008, followed by two years of residency and one year on staff at Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Philadelphia, PA. He completed his board certification in naturopathic oncology in 2011 and moved back to his native Portland, Oregon, to start private practice. Dr. Allderdice considers himself as an integrator with one foot planted firmly in the science of medicine and the other in the wisdom of natural healing. This began in his childhood, raised in separate houses, one where his father was an ER doctor and the other with his mother practicing holistic psychotherapy. Growing up Dr. Allderdice never felt drawn to take the path of either parent, but was informed by each as he grew up traveling between different paradigms. He sees the value of science, logic, mechanism and research but knows that medicine is broader than this. Dr. Allderdice feels we must honor the human experience; take into account emotions, thoughts and experience. They directly affect wellbeing. The most powerful approach to health is created when the science of medicine and the art of healing can be woven together to support one another.

    Tumor Profiling & Treatment Presentation

    May 18, 5pm-6:15pm

    Zoom Audio/Video (Login Information in Registration Confirmation)

    Did you know that the genetic makeup of your tumor may influence the way your doctor treats your ovarian cancer?

    Some tumors are genetically disposed to accumulate more errors than others, and that treating these types of tumors with a new class of drugs called PARP inhibitors may significantly reduce the cancers progression.

    Please join us to learn more about how genetics and PARP inhibitors are being used to help patients.

    There will be a Q&A segment after the presentation.
