2021 Invitation

Dear Colleague,

I would like to personally invite you to the next joint Annual Meeting of the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) and the International Society of Oral Oncology (ISOO), which will take place virtually, from June 24 to 26, 2021.

The MASCC/ISOO Annual Meeting is the pre-eminent interdisciplinary conference on supportive care in cancer. It covers the range of problems experienced by cancer patients as a result of the disease and its treatments. Topics address all stages of cancer from diagnosis, through treatment, rehabilitation, survivorship, palliative and end of life care.

The main themes of the meeting will be COVID-19, cardio-oncology, models of supportive care, and bioethics. The meeting will consist of three days of live content, with each day operating on a different time zone. In addition, there will be multiple on-demand sessions, and videos of accepted abstracts (“e-posters”).

The on-demand sessions will include the usual parallel sessions (organized by the Study Groups), joint sessions with MASCC Affiliates and Partners, and “Meet the Expert sessions” (including writing for the journal, applying for MASCC designation as a Center of Excellence in Supportive Care). There will also be remote social events, and other opportunities to network with colleagues.

We look forward to you joining us in June!


All the best,
Dr. Andrew Davies, MBBS, MSc, MD, FRCP - Annual Meeting Chair, MASCC President
Dr Deborah Saunders, BSc, DMD - ISOO President
