Northwestern Mutual Sponsors Children's Oncology Symposium with Children's Hospital.

I am so excited to share with you that Northwestern Mutual is sponsoring Advancing Pediatric Cancer Care in Minnesota, a symposium on Friday, October 23rd in Minneapolis.

The symposium has a great lineup of speakers from Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, the Mayo Clinic, the University of Minnesota and others addressing critical issues relating to childhood cancer research and treatment.

As a company, Northwestern Mutual is committed to helping accelerate the search for cures for childhood cancers and to support the children and families who battle this disease. I’m not sure if you’re involved with treating pediatric cancer patients or researching pediatric cancer, but I wanted to make sure you were informed!
