Join us in Norfolk, Virginia in October

 

Dear VCS members and the Veterinary Oncology Community,

After 2 years of virtual annual meetings, we are extremely optimistic and excited about the plan to host our 2022 Annual Conference in person in the lovely beach town of Norfolk, Virginia.  We have missed the in-person connections and collaborations that happen at VCS and look forward to returning.

Several exciting programs are in store for this meeting. We are planning a new program element of 1-hour discussion panels.  These panels will be focused on practical aspects of clinical oncology and the various ways that colleagues approach some of the common dilemmas that we face. We are planning to discuss the clinical applications of new cancer diagnostics and management strategies for canine mast cell tumors.

We are also planning several focused sessions, like the sessions that have been held in years past, on the topics of surgical oncology, radiation oncology, immunotherapy, and lymphoma (joint discussion on canine and feline lymphoma). We are also finalizing our selection of keynote speakers to present their innovative perspectives and science.

The annual meeting will also feature lectures, abstracts, a Resident Review Workshop, a poster session, and closing social event.  We look forward to sharing additional details soon.
