Dr. Research & Mr. Patient: challenge at Cantemerle Castle

Sparks event in France with Cap Sciences and SIRIC BRIO - Bordeaux Recherche Intégrée en Oncologie

Do you have ideas to change the relation between the public, patients, healthcare and medicine? Do you want to learn from various points of view on cancer research? Take part in an afternoon to co-create options for action and recommendations to improve communication and collaboration in the field of cancer research.

During one afternoon in the beautiful Cantemerle Castle (awarded wine domain close to Bordeaux) play the game of the 'original workshops on cancer'.

Co-construction workshops bringing together different profiles (doctors, paramedical staff, researchers, patients, caregivers, NGOs volunteers...) will take place to exchange views and opinions. Following the workshops a round table will allow participants to share ideas for concrete collaboration between patients or patient associations and the field of research.

The afternoon will be concluded by a cocktail with local wine tasting.

Don’t miss out this original and enriching activity open to everyone (upon previous booking) by the ASPERON group in partnership with SIRIC BRIO (Bordeaux Integrated Research on Oncology) and the local Sparks’ partner Cap Sciences!

The ASPERON group is an initiative by the SIRIC BRIO that includes cancer patients, ex-patients, caregivers, volunteers of support NGOs… who imagine and implement collaborative projects aiming at putting in relation patients and research against cancer.
