The awardee should participate in the educational session. Interested RIS will be mentored and encouraged to raise awareness about sarcoma cancer in the medical community and general public in partnership with the Rein in Sarcoma Red Flags Education Committee and will be invited to create a sarcoma related project. Each spring, a sarcoma “lunch and learn” event is encouraged to be held, with support from the Rein in Sarcoma Education Committee, featuring a patient speaker and an expert for the medical school classes.
