​TUSM OCE designates this live activity for a maximum of 7.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This AYA Cancer Conference will examine how the AYA Cancer Movement continues to reshape the practices of Pediatric Oncology, Adult Oncology, AYA Medicine, and multiple Specialties. It will briefly review the past and the present of the AYA Cancer Movement and then address the most pressing current AYA cancer topics facing AYA cancer practitioners and patients today.

Conference topics will examine how models-of-care for AYA cancer patients and survivors are being re-shaped. Discover how a novel multi-disciplinary approach to clinical research and treatment has achieved astounding breakthroughs. Learn details of the struggle to improve the outlook for patients with neurologic, bone and soft-tissue malignancies. Grasp the role genomics is playing to uncover elusive modalities for these and other rare AYA cancers. Gain insight on new technologies and tools that are enabling AYA survivors to resume conventional trajectories toward careers, financial independence, and families-of-their-own. 

Renowned for their clinical and research excellence, all speakers hold esteemed leadership positions at our nation’s premier cancer centers including Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Oregon Health & Sciences University, Rutgers Cancer Institute, and Tufts Medical Cancer Center. All speakers and panelists are leaders in the cross-practice and multi-disciplinary field of AYA Cancer.

Hear the field's leading experts share insight, from the perspective of their clinical and research experience and expertise in sarcoma, lymphoma, leukemia, neurologic malignancies, onco-fertility and more. Learn how they and their teams are driving advances in AYA Oncology and in AYA Cancer Survivorship Care.

Our speakers will also peer into the next decade for a look into what lay ahead for the AYA Cancer Movement. They'll share their insights into what they believe will be the greatest challenges the field will face in the years to come and what avenues practitioners need to pave to meet those challenges.
