Conferences & Professional Development Announcements,  November 2015


Cancer Survivorship Symposium, January 15-16

As a result of the progress in cancer care, more people are surviving cancer than ever before. With two-thirds of Americans now living at least 5 years after a cancer diagnosis, there are now 13.7 million cancer survivors living in the United States, and millions more around the world. By 2022, that number is expected to increase by 35%. Although the growing number of survivors is a welcome sign of progress, this trend also presents a challenge because many of these individuals require significant, ongoing care, such as surveillance for cancer recurrence, screening for new cancers, and care for the long-term effects of their initial treatment.  The title of this year's conference is "Advancing Care and Research : A Primary Care and Oncology Collaboration", January 15-16, San Francisco, CA.
