Patient Advocate Programs at the ASCO Annual Meeting

The ASCO Annual Meeting is considered the premier educational and scientific event in the oncology community and attracts more than 40,000 attendees worldwide. 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. The 2020 Annual Meeting originally scheduled for May 29-June 2, 2020 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, will now be provided in a virtual format, as ASCO20 Virtual. ASCO’s primary concern is the health and safety of the global oncology community and the patients we serve. As public health safety measures related to COVID-19 extend, the ASCO Board has concluded that the Annual Meeting cannot occur in person as planned.  

To view the schedule and program for ASCO20 Virtual, please visit the meeting website.  For patient advocates interested in registering for the meeting, visit Events and Educational Opportunities for more information.
