Disclosure of Vested Interest
ASTRO is an accredited provider of continuing medical education. Since our accreditation is important to us, we plan activities that are compliant with the ACCME and the content or format of CME activities and related materials will promote improvements or quality in health care and not a specific proprietary business interest or commercial bias.

Any conflicts of interest are resolved prior to participation. In addition to written disclosure, presenters will disclose any vested interest or their intention to discuss off-label use of pharmaceuticals or devices, if applicable, to the audience at the beginning of their presentation and in accordance with the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education standards and the Food and Drug Administration requirements.
In an effort to increase transparency and easy access to all disclosures, faculty, committee and presenter disclosure information will be available online for the 2019 Multidisciplinary Thoracic Cancers Symposium. In addition to being available online, disclosure slides will be shown at the beginning of each session. Disclosure information will not be printed in paper versions of the meeting materials.
