Nobel Peace Prize Winner Stephen Schneider Keynotes Annual Conference of Community Oncologists
Date:2/5/2009

time, the conference will host a "Town Hall" meeting to provide cancer care professionals at all levels with the opportunity to discuss these and other pressing issues facing community oncology. The open-mike session will be hosted by Lee Schwartzberg, M.D., a practicing medical oncologist and chairman of the conference, along with Ted Okon, COA's executive director.

Dr. Schwartzberg will also moderate a panel on "The $96 Billion Dilemma: Who Will Pay for Cancer Care?" The panel highlights a pressing issue for community oncologists, who treat 84 percent of cancer patients. Many are being forced to close their offices as government and insurance reimbursements no longer cover the costs of cancer drugs and the costs to treat patients.

Documentary filmmaker, Gordon Quinn, the executive producer of "Hoop Dreams" and who has been diagnosed with leukemia, will participate in the panel discussion, "Living with the Specter of Cancer."

The conference is sponsored by Community Oncology Alliance; Community Oncology, the Elsevier publication that serves as an invaluable resource for oncology practitioners in private practice; Reed Medical Education and Mosby's Office of Nursing Continuing Education, Elsevier companies which provide continuing medical education to healthcare professionals.
