MASCC/ISOO 2017: Sharing Success in Supportive Care in Cancer
On behalf of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO), I am delighted to invite you to join me at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Washington DC, USA. Mark June 22-24, 2017 on your calendar now!
The MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting is unique in its multidisciplinary approach to the scientific program. The 2017 meeting will feature plenary sessions on financial toxicity, precision medicine, and immunotherapy side effects. These topics span a range of specialties and allied professions, enabling the whole team to come together to discuss issues of mutual interest on a global platform. Themed pre-conference workshops will provide a unique opportunity for in-depth discussions on specific areas of side effect management. In addition, mentored sessions for poster presenters will provide guidance from world leaders for our experts of the future.
2017 will build on the phenomenal success of the 2016 meeting in Adelaide, Australia by widening the international nature of discussion and exchanges to include delegates from Asia, Australasia and the Far East. Washington, DC, the US capital, is a compact city defined by imposing neoclassical monuments, such as the Lincoln Memorial, as well as many museums and performing arts venues. As the heart of US government and finance, it is home to the White House, Federal Reserve, and the National Archives Building, which houses the US Declaration of Independence. Fascinating museums include the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Museum of Natural History. For culture, the Kennedy Center of Performing Arts is a "must." The National Cancer Institute is only a short distance away in Bethesda, Maryland.
Please share this invitation with any colleagues who might be interested in attending. Meanwhile, I look forward to welcoming you to MASCC/ISOO 2017!
