The 16th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO) will be held October 19-21, 2019 in New York City, New York, USA. The theme is "Integrative Oncology: Advancing the Science & Art of Integrative Oncology." The SIO Conference is the gathering place for clinicians, researchers, patients, advocates and trainees in integrative cancer care from all over the world. The Conference will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear about advancements made in the field, present their research findings, build collaborations, and learn from each other. The program includes keynotes, plenary sessions, moderated panels, workshops, and oral and poster presentations of research findings. There will be informal time for gathering, including a welcome reception and a conference dinner. 

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations that represent the broad spectrum of integrative cancer research (basic, clinical, health care utilization, cost effectiveness, program and best practice guideline development) and clinical care are welcomed. In keeping with the conference theme, individuals submitting abstracts are encouraged to consider the research to practical applications factors of their work and its relevance to integrative cancer care.

More than 400 physicians, researchers, nurses, integrative medicine practitioners, patient advocates, and patients from 17 countries convened in Scottsdale, Arizona, from October 27-29, 2018 for the 15th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology.

Programming focused on the theme “From Research to Practical Applications" and was presented in coordination with Banner MD Anderson and the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, University of Arizona. The conference included three outstanding keynote presentations and three plenary sessions, plus multiple workshops, oral abstracts, posters, and networking opportunities. SIO appreciates the program support of the Dr. Rogers Prize and the Weil Foundation.

As cannabis becomes more widely available for medical purposes increasing numbers of cancer patients are reporting benefit from its use. The published medical literature is thin on evidence. Oncologists report that they often recommend medical cannabis for their patients but describe a lack of knowledge to support their recommendations. An internet lore suggests that cannabis may be useful not only for treating symptoms related to cancer and its treatment but to treating cancer itself.
