Scripps Cancer Center’s 27th Annual Conference: Clinical Hematology and Oncology 2007 is designed for hematologists, oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, internists, and others desiring an update in these specialty areas. The program focuses on selected hematologic subjects the first day, hematologic malignancies the second day, new developments in oncology with a focus on issues of current interest the third day and breast cancer the final day. Ample time will be provided for participant interaction. This year, we are pleased to offer a dinner symposium discussing fertility and pregnancy issues for women with cancer. All presenters will discuss their approaches to challenging but common clinical situations.
The primary objective of this course is to bring together clinicians and leading experts in diverse areas of hematology and oncology, affording them an intimate environment in which to discuss new clinical developments and significant advances.
We are honored to have two lectureships showcased at the meeting this year. Dr. Christy Russell will present the Dr. Robert Longmire Memorial Lecture. Dr. Longmire was a valued member of Scripps Clinic and this lectureship has been established in his memory. The honoree of the prestigious 27th Annual Bernard L. Schwartz Lecture will be Dr. Alexandra Levine. She will be presenting on the Pathogenesis of HIV-related Malignancies.
Afternoon workshop sessions will be offered focusing on topics in hematology and coagulation.
A glance at the agenda will reveal we have been most fortunate to assemble an outstanding faculty for this meeting. We look forward to seeing many past participants again in 2007 and invite to San Diego those of you who have not previously had the opportunity to attend this excellent conference.
