WELCOME

Welcome to the 9th Annual Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation Conference. The two-day scientific event and special Patient Day features cutting-edge research, innovative therapies, and the latest education for cholangiocarcinoma professionals and patients.

It is a pleasure to offer you an in-person experience but a virtual option is available as an alternative. However, being able to meet face-to-face amid safety precautions enriches the conference experience by uniting people who are fearlessly working to fight the rare disease with the patients and caregivers they serve.

Enjoy Salt Lake City and experience a successful conference that features clinical and scientific updates, panel discussions, poster presentations, and more. Please join us in thanking our conference co-chairs Jesper Andersen, Ph.D., and Lipika Goyal, M.D., MPhil.

LIGHT IT GREEN WALK

The Light it Green for CCA Walk is an evening demonstration in downtown Salt Lake City to celebrate the closure of the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation's 15th anniversary and to commemorate Cholangiocarcinoma Awareness Month. The short walk takes place from the Salt Palace Convention Center and continues around the block to Main Street and South Temple and will conclude where it began. Participants will be walking in glow-in-the dark attire and carrying green lanterns. Kelly green is the official color of cholangiocarcinoma. Local dignitaries and special guests are anticipated to attend. If you’d like to participate, please sign up during registration.
