What sets Perspectives in Thoracic Oncology apart from other conferences in the lung cancer space are the true thoracic experts that share relevant updates and perspectives in an intimate setting. I am looking forward to discussing the emerging strategies for adjuvant therapies in early stage NSCLC."

I have been attending Perspectives in Thoracic Oncology for the last 7 to 8 years and find the breadth of material presented and the depth of discussion of the material rewarding. It has reinforced my current knowledge of the science of lung cancer and its rapidly evolving treatment that includes biologic agents, conventional chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and new approaches. The back and forth discussions of treatment options has been stimulating. I will be attending this year's meeting and into the future."

I chose to be a part of Perspectives in Thoracic Oncology because of the cutting edge topics being discussed. I enjoy the smaller, close-knit community feel of this meeting."

As a nurse practitioner specializing in lung cancer, I look forward to The Perspectives in Thoracic Oncology Conference each year. I am never disappointed as the topics span from screening and smoking cessation to various treatment modalities, as well as updates on trials. I credit this annual conference to the practice improvements that our multidisciplinary team makes annually."
