Each year, the American Cancer Society estimates the numbers of new cancer cases and deaths that will occur in the United States. A total of 1,658,370 new cancer cases and 589,430 cancer deaths are projected to occur in the United States in 2015. Because they are so diverse in their individual biology, clinical course management of many of these cancers is increasingly difficult, constantly evolving and fraught with controversy. In this environment it has become much more difficult and complicated for those involved in the care the cancer patient to remain current in best practice for each of the many tumor types that constitute “CANCER”. This year our faculty will profile and discuss the clinical and technical advances, promising clinical trials data, national guidelines, and key controversies in the management of breast cancer, lung cancer, cns tumors, gastrointestinal malignancies, melanoma, genitourinary malignancies, head and neck cancer, gynecologic cancer and hematologic malignancies. Through cutting edge lectures, case discussion, and interactive question and answer sessions this intensive 4-day program will provide participants with an enhanced ability to interpret and apply these best treatment options into their individual cancer practices.
