The 2019 AACI/CCAF Annual Meeting, October 20-22 in Washington, DC, will include additional meetings for AACI’s Physician Clinical Leadership Initiative (PCLI) and Government Relations (GR) Forum, as well as a CAR T Symposium. All events are included in the regular annual meeting registration. However, attendees must register online prior to the meetings or modify a previous registration. Please note: the following meetings are only open to AACI members. Annual meeting registration rates will increase on Friday, September 20.
PCLI is a resource for creating best practices to help cancer center physician clinical leaders, such as chief medical officers and chief physicians, address a range of operational challenges while providing the best patient care. In this session, panelists will discuss initiatives that target health research for sexual and gender minorities and patient financial toxicity, particularly its effect on patient care.
AACI, in collaboration with the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC), is pleased to announce the 2019 CAR T Symposium. The symposium will address challenges in providing CAR T, such as patient access and barriers to care. Academic and community clinical physicians, clinical administrators, clinical directors for cellular and transplantation programs, nursing managers, clinical research directors, patient advocates, government employees, and industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
The GR Forum provides an opportunity for government relations professionals from AACI member cancer centers to discuss federal and state policy issues that impact the cancer community. The meeting will feature presentations and roundtable discussions covering a variety of topics.
