ASCO 2020

ASCO (the American Society of Clinical Oncology) 2020, the largest meeting for oncology experts around the world, has come and gone, and for the first time ever, it was virtual. Although we couldn’t convene in Chicago with our colleagues and clients, we ramped up our content like never before in this new virtual climate.

Adam Feuerstein then spoke with top experts and discussed the groundbreaking research that emerged from the conference. You can also find a W2O sponsored STAT News article called "Relevance Amid a Global Health Crisis," written by Chuck Hemann.

A Symplur ASCO with Brian Reid

Our seasoned ASCO exports, Jennifer Paganelli and Brian Reid, joined together to recap the meeting via a virtual conversation. The plan was to discuss the biggest trends and insights seen during ASCO 2020. However, given the conversation over ASCO weekend focused largely on the racial injustice facing the world, they pivoted focus to discuss the disparities in cancer care, and how important it is for equal opportunity in healthcare treatment. It was a dynamic and engaging discussion, which you can watch here.
