We are getting closer and closer to the 2018 NAACCR Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, PA, June 9 through June 14. June is a great time of year to visit Pittsburgh. There is so much to see and do: bike rides, river boat tours, museums, inclines up the mountain, the list goes on and on. Not to mention all the wonderful dining options. Be sure to check out the Activities tab on the conference web page for more details.

You won’t want to miss the opening ceremony it will be sure to get your feet stomping. Our keynote speaker will share his inspiring story and will have us reaching for VICTORY. The 2018 agenda is packed full of information. There are five plenary sessions covering advances in precision medicine, the legal side of cancer surveillance, new data and new data sources, clinical outcome improvement, and planning for the future. There are five concurrent sessions that include 27 separate tracks, plus 3 student tracks. The concurrent sessions cover such topics as Epidemiology, Survival, Natural Language Processing, National Quality Initiatives, Timeliness, Improving Registry Operations, Biomarkers, Tissue Repositories, Data Linkage and so much more. See the full agenda on the conference web page.
