2018 NAACCR Program Chair

The Pennsylvania Cancer Registry is honored to host the 2018 NAACCR Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA, June 9 through June 16. Pittsburgh is continually recognized as a must-see destination. Most recently, Harper’s Bazaar named Pittsburgh one of the “Best Places to Travel in 2017.” With all of the outstanding attractions including museums, art galleries, championship sports teams, award-winning restaurants and so much more, you’re going to love Pittsburgh.

The theme of this year’s conference is: “Bridging the Path to the Future of Cancer Surveillance.” The 2018 conference’s plenary sessions will cover advances in precision medicine, the legal side of cancer surveillance, new data and new data sources, clinical outcome improvement and planning for the future. Pre-conference workshops include SEER* Stat Workshops, Geocoding Operations and Match*Pro. The popular YOUNG Talks and Birds of Feather sessions will once again be offered.

The Tuesday Evening Opening Reception will include Pittsburgh inspired cuisine, a DJ spinning our favorite tunes and a photo booth to create a memento. Fun will be had by all. The program committee is also working on some fun activities for Wednesday afternoon. Stay tuned for more information.

Registration and information updates can be found on the NAACCR Annual Conference web site.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you there.
