The countdown to WCIO is on! With less than 5 weeks away from WCIO 2016 in Boston, the demand runs extremely high and the horizon looks better than ever! A fleet of 185 best of the best IO researchers, clinicians, educators, and pioneers will join forces with the WCIO faculty where 121 state of the art lectures will be presented during 21 plenary sessions. Daily disease specific tumor boards designed to bring out the most critical questions and ignite discussions amongst the audience and the experts will keep interest high throughout the congress. The level and number of scientific presentations has never been higher and the exhibit hall is sold out. New sessions to highlight the most influential publications and evidence-based debates amongst the most renowned authorities in the word will make this meeting unforgettable.
Registration is ahead of expectations with discounted registration fees expiring on May 2. Take 5 minutes of your time this weekend and register early for what is going to be The BEST IO Forum of the year.
On another note I want to share a recent conversation with a colleague the other day who is interested in getting involved with WCIO and his comments on why he wants to volunteer struck me … He said “I have learned tremendously from the educational services that are provided by WCIO. The education from the annual meeting, online discussion forums, case of the week and live webinars have helped make my transition from fellowship to being an attending a very smooth process. Therefore, I would like to join the WCIO and return the favor and help others.” As we head into WCIO 2016 and the end of my three years volunteering on the program committee his comments make all the hours of preparation well worth it! The program committee has worked hard to bring you this exceptional program to increase IO expertise, encourage fellows and residents to get into this growing field and learn how to educate colleagues on the benefits of IO. I am thrilled to be meeting with all of you in Boston from June 9-12.
