Putting Patients at the Center of Care at #ASCO16

By Andrea Greif |

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (#ASCO16) annual meeting kicked off today as more than 30,000 researchers from around the world converged in Chicago to share their latest clinical findings on treatments and diagnostics for all cancers, and to exchange ideas about how to improve outcomes for cancer patients.

Putting patients at the center of cancer care and research is this year’s theme at ASCO, something we at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) try to do every day. Sprinkled among the scientific presentations of clinical data will be many educational discussions and lectures about better meeting the needs of the patient.
