Patients & Caregivers

Patient education events

At Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), providing cancer treatment is just as important as education for our patients, caregivers and people who support them. 

Important notice

For your safety, we have temporarily canceled all in-person patient education events. We encourage you to visit our YouTube channel, which hosts a variety of cancer related videos including recordings of past events. If you have any questions about a specific event, please reach out to Ritu Shriyan at rshriyan@seattlecca.org.
