33rd National Oncology Conference Highlights

Highlights from the ACCC 33rd National Oncology Conference

More than 600 cancer care professionals from across the country gathered at #ACCCNOC, the ACCC 33rd National Oncology Conference, from October 19-21, 2016, in St. Louis, MO. The Cancer Moonshot framed Thursday’s sessions with a heartfelt video message to ACCC members from Vice President Joe Biden, who emphasized that community cancer centers are the “bridge” between the Moonshot and cancer patients.

Vice President Biden’s message was reiterated in a session by Anabella Aspiras, Director for Patient Engagement, Cancer Moonshot Taskforce, which explored the effect of the Cancer Moonshot on providers in the community setting. Ms. Aspiras highlighted the three Moonshot reports announced on Monday, October 17, 2016.

Other conference highlights included compelling presentations from three keynote speakers, two rapid-fire spotlight sessions, eight award-winning innovations for the advancement of cancer care, and expert panels which addressed many of the challenges facing today’s cancer programs.
