A Word from the President
Greetings from & its president Dr. Humaid Al-Shamsi!
It is with great pleasure that EOS announces the ASCO Direct UAE 2020 Webinar Series kick off in August 2020, the first of its kind in the Middle East region, set to cover breakthrough research presented this year at the ASCO Annual Meeting.
The abstracts to be chosen for presentation and discussion will reflect the topics most sought-after in our region, after careful selection with you, our partners, and will reflect the foremost research and strategies in oncology care that directly impact patient care. Expert faculty will place abstract findings into clinical context and discuss how the results may change the current standards of care. To support this exquisite scientific content, our digital platform allows for presentation, discussion, analysis and HCP participation.
The ASCO Direct UAE 2020 program benefits an interactive presentation of the findings which allows for a greater satisfaction with the content, especially if HCPs are able to discuss them with their colleagues and peers post webinar, by also expanding HCP’s exposure to ASCO meetings. At the same time, it is our goal to bring the content to oncologists in our region and provide local opportunities for non-oncologists to learn the key findings of new research recently presented. To support all these advantages, ASCO Direct UAE 2020 Webinar Series is organized by the EOS committee of ASCO-approved experts in our area and provides up-to-date information vital to a multidisciplinary approach to cancer management.
Looking forward to e-meeting you on this great initiative!
Humaid Al-Shamsi MD(Hon),MRCP(UK),FRCP(C),FACP President of the Emirates Oncology Society
