Providing state-of-the-art cancer care through diagnostic, therapeutic, and supportive strategies is dependent on incorporating the latest clinical advancements and data into practice. In solid tumors and hematologic malignancies alike—and across all cancer types—novel approaches in testing, systemic therapy, targeted and immunotherapies, and combination strategies continue to drive improvements in patient outcomes.
Now in its 35th year, the Chemotherapy Foundation Symposium™ (CFS™) brings together more than 2000 healthcare professionals, including oncologists, hematologists, radiologists, immunologists, pharmacists, NPs, PAs, and patient advocates, and strives to deliver the latest answers to your clinical challenges. Our internationally renowned faculty will provide expert analysis on the most recent developments in cancer therapies, synthesizing scores of data to provide attendees with the critical distilled information they need. This preeminent 3-day conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to learn new methods of personalizing care for your patients with cancer. Together, we will Innovate Cancer Therapy for Tomorrow®. See you in New York!
