Physicians’ Education Resource® (PER®), will host the 2nd Annual School of Gastrointestinal Oncology™ (SOGO™), a specialized continuing medical education conference for clinicians who manage some of the most difficult-to-treat forms of gastrointestinal cancers, on April 29 at Intercontinental Time Square, New York.
The program will be led by co- chairs Dr. John Marshall, chief of Division of Hematology/ Oncology, Georgetown University Hospital and director of Ruesch Center for the Cure of Gastrointestinal Cancers in Washington D.C., and Dr. Michael A. Choti, the Joan and Dr. George Bayoud Professor, Surgical Oncology, UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.
In the making the announcement, PER® President Phil Talamo said, “We are very excited for this year’s SOGO™ meeting. We started this program last year to address the truly unmet educational needs for a multidisciplinary event that brings together GI cancer specialists from different practice settings. We designed the agenda with different tracks that allow attendees to choose what they want to hear in different rooms, and then come together in real tumor-board sessions. It is without a doubt the most unique GI-focused CME conference in the United States.”
This year’s one-day School of Gastrointestinal Oncology™ meeting will continue to provide a multitrack curriculum program focused exclusively on management of gastrointestinal tumors. The agenda will focus on the latest data on prognostic and predictive markers that affect clinical decision making, current and emerging treatment strategies. It will also include case-based lectures by expert faculty who will focus on the practical application of knowledge to the complex-care scenarios encountered in contemporary practice settings.
