Lunch & Learn Live | Coffee & Conversations

Lunch & Learn Live and Coffee & Conversations (online) sessions build communities and educate patients and their families about bladder cancer. These customized online and in-person programs for patients and their families are offered in local communities and feature presentations by regionally bladder cancer experts. Patients can interact with and ask questions of their local professionals about what goes on in their programs at the hospital. Each program is unique and designed by the co-sponsoring medical practice to meet the needs of patients and families in their communities. 

The Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network provides modest grants to defray the cost of food at the Lunch & Learn Live programs. As part of our comprehensive approach to bringing educational materials to the bladder cancer community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we revamped our popular, in-person Lunch and Learn programs.  Rather than meeting in person, participants can now get the same great content via our Coffee and Conversations series, delivered via Zoom.

If you are interested in partnering with BCAN to host a program, please reach out to us at 

Programming from BCAN is supported through our community partners and we greatly appreciate their support.


Each program is free, unique and designed with our medical partners to meet the needs of patients and families in their communities.
