CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

 

An opportunity for health care professionals, researchers, students, patient advocates, and patients interested in learning and sharing scientific advances that allow for tailored approaches to cancer care and promote development of an evidence-base for complementary therapies and practices used in integrative oncology. 

The 13th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology will once again be the gathering place for clinicians, researchers, patients and advocates in integrative cancer care from all over the world. The conference, on the theme “Advancing the Global Impact of Integrative Oncology,” will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear about advances made in the field, to present their work, build collaborations and to learn from each other. Our schedule includes keynotes, plenary sessions, experiential workshops, and oral and abstract presentations of research findings. There will be informal time for networking, including a gala reception and dinner.

We are monitoring the situation regarding the Zika virus in South Florida and have posted the latest CDC advisory regarding travel to our area below. Our conference location is presently outside of the neighborhood concerned and we will update this section as additional information becomes available.  http://www.cdc.gov/zika/intheus/florida-update.html
