Meeting Up in Chicago

October 6, 2017 - We’ll be getting together in Chicago next week for our fall group meeting. I hate to scoop the agenda book, but I don’t mind sharing a few tidbits now:

- Go mobile! All the meeting information you need is on a new app, powered by Guidebook. Get schedules, speakers, continuing medical education information and more – right on your smartphone. Visit to download.

- Are you still relatively old school and just want to plan online? It’s all right! Find the schedule of events and a complete agenda book by clicking this link.

- As always, we’ve got top-drawer speakers. A few examples: Dr. Luis Diaz, internationally recognized for his work in cancer genetics and immune-oncology, is presenting on liquid biopsies at the translational medicine plenary. And Dr. Larry Chu and Alicia Staley of Stanford Medicine X will present on our 2017 theme of innovation at the general plenary.

- We have a handful of special sessions planned, including our 3rd annual NCORP workshop, a seminar on cultural competency and clinical trials, and a screening of a brand-new documentary film on teens and young adults coping with cancer.

- Don’t forget Friday’s closing reception – the place to meet up with friends and colleagues across the group and enjoy free drinks and food.

- If you Tweet the meeting, please use #SWOGonc as your hashtag. That way, we can search for your tweets and pull together a compilation from Chicago.

Looking forward to seeing you!

We’ll skip Front Line next week due to group meeting, and be back on October 20.
