As the first webinar in the Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) & Lymphoma series, three doctors from SickKids will provide an overview of the disease-specific biology of lymphoma most common in youth and young adults. This presentation will highlight the presentation of Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in this age group and relevant clinical information for both subtypes. The final part of this talk will focus on Ontario specific data for lymphoma patients.
