Washington DC to Host MASCC/ISOO 2017

The 2017 Annual Meeting of MASCC/ISOO will take place in Washington, DC, USA, from June 21 to 24. Scientific Meeting Chair Rachel Gibson has announced the theme of the meeting as “Sharing Successes in Supportive Care in Cancer.” Topics will include new models of coordinated care, strategies for managing targeted therapies, the integration of oncology and dermatology, and financial toxicity. New e-poster sessions will be mentored by leading world experts, many based at the National Cancer Institute or other US research centers.

As the heart of US government and finance, it is home to the White House, the Federal Reserve, and the National Archives Building, which houses the US Declaration of Independence. Museums and other points of interest include the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Lincoln Memorial.
