Approximately 44 percent of ASCO’s more than 36,000 members reside outside the United States, representing a global community of cancer care providers.   ASCO International connects these members, organizations, and countries through a large and expanding portfolio of international oncology workshops and award opportunities. The program’s ultimate goal is optimizing care for every patient with cancer in the world. To achieve this goal, ASCO counts on its volunteer to coordinates activities, serve as mentors, and travel worldwide to teach courses on such topics as palliative care, clinical trials, and multidisciplinary cancer management.
