8th Annual New York Lung Cancer Symposium®
November 9, 2013
Crowne Plaza® Times Square - Manhattan
New York, NY
OverviewThe 8th Annual New York Lung Cancer Symposium® is a one-day meeting which will serve as an update on advances in the field and will focus on the future of lung cancer treatment including: molecular subsets, targeted agents in development, treatment options in early stage, screening, the ongoing guideline debate, and a look forward from the experts.
Participants will learn from engaging presentations delivered by thought leaders and by reviewing and discussing realistic and complex scenarios, sharing clinical experiences, understanding well-established and emerging unmet therapeutic opportunities, solving clinical problems, and clarifying best practices. Participants will actively respond to and interact with the faculty through informal questions and open discussion, and as a result of this approach will leave with a higher level of understanding than they would otherwise achieve.
Target AudienceThis educational activity is directed toward medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists involved in the treatment and management of patients with lung cancer. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of lung cancer may also participate.
