ASCO is seeking medical institutions in low- and middle-income countries in the Asia-Pacific region to organize one or two live educational courses per year as part of the Society’s International Cancer Corps. The request for proposals process is now open, and all proposals are due December 1.
On the ASCO in Action Podcast, ASCO President Dr. Howard A. “Skip” Burris discusses why he became an oncologist, the impact of mentors, the changes he’s witnessed in cancer care, and his vision for the coming year. Dr. Burris stresses that we can’t “divide and conquer, to conquer cancer,” a message underscored by his ASCO presidential theme, “Unite and Conquer: Accelerating Progress Together.”

Upcoming Symposia include the Palliative and Supportive Care in Oncology Symposium, Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium, Cancer Survivorship Symposium: Advancing Care in Research, Genitourinary Cancers Symposium and more.
