We're heading into the season where much of the biggest news in the cancer world for the year is about to be released, in press releases and full presentations at our annual conference of the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO).  The meeting is June 1-5, in Chicago, and I'll be presenting some of my own work and chairing an educational session on the changing relationships between patients and doctors from the growing knowledge base of patients from online sources.  There will be several other presentations that may well have implications that can change how we practice and offer new treatment options.  

Dr. Joel Neal

Dr. Mark Socinski

On June 28th, at 7 PM Eastern/4 PM Pacific, we're going to have two terrific guest faculty members leading us through the most interesting and important work: Dr. Joel Neal, Assistant Professor in Medical Oncology at Stanford, and Dr. Mark Socinski, Professor and Director of the Lung Cancer Program at the University of Pittsburgh.  Rather than divide by cancer type, we'll see what the most relevant ASCO presentations are and then divide them between our two great speakers.  Each will speak for about 30 minutes, followed by time for a question and answer session with our live audience.

Registration is free: all you need to do to join our ASCO Lung Cancer Highlight webinar is to sign up through this link.  We'll be editing the content of the program to make it available in free podcasts, but you'll want to be there for the live event!
