July 10, 2018
By: North Carolina Oncology Association,

The North Carolina Oncology Association will hold their annual conference on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 7 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. in Raleigh at Raleigh Marriott City Center.

An important part of NCOA's mission is to demonstrate a strong commitment to supporting the educational needs of early career oncology professionals, who are vital to the future of high-quality patient care.

Join us for a networking reception highlighting outstanding fellows across the state on Friday, Sept. 7, 5:15 to 6:30 p.m., at the Raleigh Marriott City Center.

Then, prepare for an exciting day of clinical innovations and political insights at #NCOA2018 on Saturday, as we explore how local practices can improve the patient experience—identifying opportunities for novel therapeutic approaches for breast, pancreatic, and thoracic cancer—while preparing for federal legislative changes in the year ahead.
