Empire State Hematology and Oncology Society Virtual Annual Conference - 11/5/2021

Research in oncology is yielding many valuable advances in the understanding of cancer and its treatment. But the flow of information can be so rapid that health care professionals who care for patients with cancer find it difficult to keep up. In particular, advances in precision medicine and immunotherapy and refinements in surgery are revolutionizing the care of patients with various cancers. Meanwhile, cancer treatment is becoming more tailored to the specific needs of the individual patient.
