In 2019, ASCO launched an Asia-Pacific Regional Council, a group of distinguished oncology leaders from countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The Council’s purpose is to advise ASCO on the needs of members in the region and facilitate and encourage member involvement in ASCO’s global activities.
“Increasing engagement with our international members is a key piece of our Society’s strategic plan,” said ASCO President Lori J. Pierce, MD, FASTRO, FASCO. “We look to their rich experiences, insights, and knowledge to further the field of oncology and patient care around the globe. Diversity of thought—including convening members from different cultures, specialties, and practice types—makes our knowledge base stronger. Regional councils are one way we hope to foster this collaboration.”
