SIO's committees and task forces are engaged in developing educational programs, publications and other resources to further integrative oncology, as well as advance the organization's operations, membership and communications. Committees and task forces also provide opportunities for SIO members to interact and share their experience in the development of these initiatives. Members are invited to contact info@integrativeonc.org if interested in seeking appointment to a particular committee or task force.
