LACONIA — Gilda’s Club New Hampshire will host Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Clinical Trials on Thursday, Dec. 5, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Taylor Community in the Woodside Building, at 435 Union Ave.

The speaker at the free workshop will be Cindy Arcieri, MS, RN, OCN, director of nursing and clinical operations at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

The workshop will highlight how clinical trials work and play a part in research. Not every cancer patient will be eligible for a clinical trial or needs to be enrolled, but everyone should be aware of clinical trials as a treatment option.
