Physicians' Education Resource® (PER®), a worldwide leading resource for continuing medical education (CME), will present its ASCO Direct™ Highlights Saturday, June 29, at the Millennium Maxwell House Nashville in Tennessee. The program will be co-chaired by Dr. Leora Horn, associate professor of medicine, assistant director of the educator development program and clinical director of thoracic oncology program at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Dr. Melissa L. Johnson, medical oncologist at Sarah Cannon Research Institute.
"We are so pleased to offer this single-day, exciting program to oncologists, nurses and pathologists across the county to learn about top practice-changing data in clinical oncology," said Phil Talamo, president of PER®. "Our goal is to expand our attendees' knowledge of evolving therapeutic paradigms for patients with solid tumors or hematologic malignancies and improve their ability to select therapeutic options based on patient and tumor characteristics."
ASCO Direct™ Highlights is a one-day program designed to provide medical and surgical oncologists, as well as nurses and pathologists, with key practice-changing data from the premier clinical oncology event in North America. The top abstracts in solid tumors, including thoracic, breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, and dermatologic malignancies, will be featured. The top abstracts presented in hematologic malignancies will also be discussed. In addition, extended time will be devoted to discussing the top abstracts from the overall American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting, including the plenary session.
