Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure for us to invite you to the 18th Multidisciplinary Management of Cancers meeting to be held March 16-18, 2018. The 2018 program represents a collaborative effort of expert clinicians from the Stanford Cancer Institute, University of California, Davis, University of California, San Francisco, and the Association of Northern California Oncologists.

Based on the recurrent enthusiasm for a case oriented approach we once again will be tackling some of the toughest cases, heavily relying upon audience participation and feedback. Community oncologists will be represented on the panels as well. With that in mind, we remind you that we look forward to your submission of real cases to discuss. Using our online case submission form, please submit cases for us by the end of December 2017. We will select cases from among those submitted for presentation.

Our primary goal of this meeting, as always, is to provide learners with the latest developments in the multidisciplinary management of cancers.

Space is limited so register early. We look forward to your participation at this meeting.

Sincerely,

A. Dimitrios Colevas, MD
