Delivering Discoveries: Updates in Oncology

Program Description

The second annual Delivering Discoveries: Updates in Oncology is a live meeting scheduled for October 27-28, 2022 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. The diagnosis and management of cancer patients is increasingly complex and requires multidisciplinary management. This 1.5 day event will address all aspects of cancer, from basic science research and advances in clinical care to community-based approaches that optimize prevention and interception. We have assembled a multidisciplinary group of internationally renowned faculty from UCSD, SDSU, and other institutions to systematically present the latest in cancer research with the goal of iteratively addressing and identifying gaps in knowledge that present a barrier to optimizing outcomes for patients with cancer.

Target Audience

The target audience for this initiative includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, internal medicine physicians, scientists, nurses, public health experts, and others who care for patients with cancer.
