Bladder Cancer Awareness Walk
RIOT members share the work they are doing in the field of uro-oncology at the annual bladder cancer walk where they interact with survivors and families affected with bladder cancer. Our team shares current advances in treatments for bladder cancer, including immunotherapies, where they see the field progressing and answers any questions regarding the field.
McGill Relay For Life
RIOT participates in the McGill Relay for Life annually where our members give a talk about the current state and importance of cancer research & current work they are doing in their fields. Member's walk the track along with the other participants and survivors throughout the evening! As a team, we raised over 1200$ to support the great cause and look forward to participate each year!
StemCell Talks Symposium
Let’s Talk Science McGill Chapter hosted a Stem Cell Talks High School Symposium in collaboration with Stem Cell Networks. We presented the basics of cancer research and the applications of stem cells in this field at this event. This activity was organized by our Youth Outreach team and the lecture was followed by a fun trivia activity that got students thinking about cancer and stem cells.
Cancer Talk at Dawson College
RIOT members gave a short 1-hour talk to a biology class regarding cancer and current treatment strategies. It was an excellent opportunity to teach students about how cancer arises and develops. The discussion was quite enriching and many students were provided with opportunities to voice their opinions and concerns about the current state of research and treatment.
