2023 Midwest Precision Oncology Symposium

Livonia, MI US
September 30, 2023

This program, the 2023 Midwest Precision Oncology Symposium, is an accredited continuing education activity designed to improve the care of cancer patients by educating cancer care providers about precision oncology. This oncology conference features leading experts in the field of precision oncology who will provide a comprehensive overview of the implications of actionable molecular alterations across common malignancies.
This activity is designed to facilitate learning, improve knowledge retention, and inspire participants to implement the newly acquired knowledge into their clinical practice. Through didactic lectures, case-based discussions, and interactive questions and answer sessions, participants will be able to ask relevant questions, clarify concerns, and network with expert faculties. 
During this live meeting, expert faculty will review recent advances, as well as key abstract findings relevant to precision oncology from the ASCO2023 annual meeting and place those findings into clinical context during the case-based discussions and questions and answer sessions, with a focus on how those findings might impact patient care.
