Next month, more than 30,000 oncology professionals will gather in Chicago for the 2016 ASCO Annual Meeting. This year’s theme, “Collective Wisdom: The Future of Patient-Centered Care and Research,” highlights the value of the combined knowledge of the global oncology community, spanning across cancer specialties and new areas of scientific inquiry.
Are you planning to join this global community and help shape the future of cancer care and research? As you consider what to pack for your trip, keep in mind that you have a host of electronic resources at your fingertips that will help you plan your meeting and enhance your on-site experience.
The Attendee Resource Center (am.asco.org/arc) serves as a one-stop shop for ASCO’s entire suite of Annual Meeting apps, publications, and products. There, you can view, print, or download a variety of resources to help you get the most out of the Annual Meeting.
