Dannemiller Memorial Education Foundation and GR MedEd, Inc. Announce Oncology Summit: From Discovery to Delivery
Date:1/31/2008

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- National opinion leaders will convene in Arlington, Virginia, March 6-8, 2008 to present the latest data, guidelines, practical applications, and strategies for the treatment of common malignancies. State-of-the-art technology will be used to make the meeting highly interactive.

The Summit will provide 13.75 CME credits and 16.5 CE credits sponsored by The Dannemiller Educational Foundation, and the content is being developed under the direction of the program chair, Andrew Seidman, MD, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the distinguished Oncology Summit Advisory Panel and Faculty members -- some of the country's most renowned clinicians, researchers, and oncology educators.

This three-day, highly interactive conference will offer large and smaller group sessions that will facilitate interaction with the national opinion leaders and is designed to offer cutting-edge educational programming for 500 medical, radiation and surgical oncologists, oncology nurses, fellows and residents and primary care physicians interested in cancer treatment and prevention. Sessions will include topics on clinical practice guidelines, focused on translating the discovery of solutions to the delivery of quality patient care, improving patient access, improving patient experience, and ultimately improving outcomes. Multidisciplinary case-based panel discussions will also be offered and are designed to hold broad appeal to Summit attendees.

The educational sessions will also be supplemented by relevant industry supported satellite symposia which will complement the educational content rather than reproduce what is being presented in the main sessions.

Chairman Dr. Andrew Seidman of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center said, "I am excited to be chairing this 3-day Oncology Summit. I believe that we have assembled a unique and dynamic group of expert speakers, and that the large and small group formats will generate a balanced opportunity for learning and interaction. This meeting promises to deliver accurate, state-of-the art, insightful overviews of challenging areas in the management of both hematologic and solid tumors. It employs a multidisciplinary faculty of medical, surgical, and radiation oncologists, and as such will truly provide an optimal disease-management focus that should be of great interest and value to virtually anyone involved in the care of the patients with cancer."
