It’s that time of the year again – ASCO (American Society of Clinical Oncology) – where the bright and caring minds of the world’s cancer experts convene for the newest advances in cancer care. No other conference or summit is quite like ASCO and the anticipation of life changing treatments for patients and their caregivers. The 2018 theme reflects this ever-changing landscape: “Delivering Discoveries: Expanding the Reach of Precision Medicine”.
As I gear up for my pilgrimage to the McCormick Place location – it’s no surprise I am eager and hopeful to hear this year’s advances in IO therapy, companion diagnostics and other technologies. Equally important is the role of patient and care giver communication to ensure that patients receive care (not just treatment) that best meets their individual needs. As a consultant attendee, our breadth of clients in this area provides a full conference slate of opportunities to learn, gain insights and help enhance patient care.
I’ll be in the halls and look forward to connecting with old friends and meeting new ones. Please share your thoughts on the meeting and let me know what you are most looking forward to. I hope to see you in Chicago.
