The right meeting, on the right topics, at the right time

“It is an exciting time to be in community oncology. Every month we hear about new therapeutic innovations, and the success our colleagues have seen implementing them in the community setting.”

“The 2018 Community Oncology Conference will feature experts who have implemented the newest immunotherapies—including CAR T-Cell and Immunotherapy—in their community oncology practices.”

“We all support each other in sharing what works, and learning how to implement new strategies. The Community Oncology Conference is the year’s best opportunity to network with the people who do what you do, and face the issues you face.”

“When I look through the packed agenda, I’m not only eager to hear from the national experts who will discuss the Oncology Care Model (OCM), managing pharmacy benefit managers and oral dispensing, as well as next generation sequencing, but also struck by this year’s theme: keeping patients at the center.”

“With all of the excitement surrounding innovation in oncology, we can’t lose our focus on providing the best care possible to patients. The tools, technologies and innovations in oncology—how we improve the care we deliver—are all for the patients we serve. This year’s conference promises to keep us focused on the patients.”

“None of us can afford to miss this year’s Community Oncology Conference. I hope to see you there.”
