The ASCO Annual Meeting is a forum for cutting edge scientiﬁc and educational developments in oncology. It is a platform for the release of thousands of scientiﬁc abstracts – highly anticipated research news for many people, including patients, survivors, caregivers, and the general public.
Patient advocates may register to attend Annual Meeting at a reduced rate. This reduced registration category is reserved exclusively for patient advocates and is not intended for medical professionals.
Patient Advocates who are active Members of ASCO will automatically receive the patient advocate discount when using the registration website. Nonmember Patient Advocates interested in registering at this rate will need to submit a CV or bio-sketch via email at email@example.com.
Individuals interested in registering under this category either work or volunteer for national or international not-for-profit patient advocacy organizations that:
Demonstrate a charitable mission
Engage in patient advocacy activities
Provide programs, services, information, and/or support for people affected by cancer
Have a nonprofessional membership
Do not offer continuing medical education (CME) or scientific programs for professionals
Additionally, advocates not affiliated with a national or international not-for-profit organization may also be eligible to register at the patient advocate rate, based on their advocacy role and experience. Please submit a CV or bio-sketch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that individuals registered under this category are not eligible to receive continuing education credit for their attendance at the Annual Meeting.
