Neuroendocrinologists of the Future
This NET Cancer Day we have asked patients to help raise awareness of NETs at 14 medical schools around the UK with the aim to reach out to the Neuroendocrinologists of the Future.
Patients and volunteers will be sharing their story and raising awareness of NETs to medics and aspiring new medical students with the additional aim of creating an interest in those medics that may wish to take a career path in the speciality of NETs.
