MASCC Society News - February Issue now available

This month, we feature the recent meeting on supportive cancer care for Eastern Europe and the Balkans, which was held in early December, 2016 and organized by the Serbian Society of Medical Oncology (UMOS) and Snežana Bošnjak, representing both UMOS and MASCC. A companion piece details the work of Snežana over the past ten years to improve access to opioids for cancer pain in Serbia, a project that has resulted in the rewriting of legislation to make opioids more readily available.
President Ian Olver highlights MASCC’s role in supporting regional supportive care groups and provides a peek at his recent trip to Japan to scout out venues for a future MASCC/ISOO meeting. We’re pleased to announce a Patient Seminar on Flavor Perception, chaired by Anna Boltong, which will precede our Annual Meeting in June and hope you will help promote this event. We also bring you a research highlight on the effects of exercise on quality of life and physical function in cancer patients, news from UICC, and upcoming conference reminders. Finally, we extend a warm welcome to the new members who joined us in December.

MASCC Society News - December Issue now available

This month, we say farewell to two of the most hardworking and appreciated members of MASCC’s staff: Executive Director Åge Schultz and Development Manager Anne Young. Reviewing all of the contributions that Åge and Anne have made to MASCC makes us even sadder to see them go. But we thank them sincerely and wish them all the best in the future.

We are pleased to announce MASCC’s new Study Group Coordinator, Donald Gubitosa. We also announce the five Study Group Workshops that have been selected for presentation at the 2017 MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, and we bring you a summary of a recent systematic review of the prevalence and impact of financial toxicity among cancer survivors. Finally, we extend a warm welcome to the new members who joined us in October.
