On behalf of ASTRO, ASCO, IASLC and The University of Chicago, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 2014 Chicago Multidisciplinary Symposium on ThoracicOncology to be held at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile on October 30-November 1, 2014. This symposiumbrings together physician specialists and practicing clinicians to discuss the evolving management of thoracic cancers with the goal of providing the most up-to-date knowledge to clinicians that will enable them to confidently prescribe the optimal care for their thoracic cancer patients now and in the future. State of the art educational lectures on the multidisciplinary approach for screening, early detection and treatment of thoracic malignancies will be given. New features of the educational lecture series is the integration of challenging clinical cases and two multidisciplinary tumor boards. The scientific program consisting of oral and poster abstract presentations is sure to provide stimulating information on the latest developments in clinical and translational research. A prestigious teaching faculty has been assembled to promote dialogue, provide multidisciplinary viewpoints and interact with participants during this two-and-a-half day symposium.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
