Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure for us to invite you to the 20th Multidisciplinary Management of Cancers meeting to be held March 13-15, 2020. The 2020 program represents a collaborative effort of expert clinicians from the Stanford Cancer Institute, University of California, Davis, University of California, San Francisco, and the Association of Northern California Oncologists.

Based on the recurrent enthusiasm for a case-oriented approach we once again will be tackling some of the toughest cases, heavily relying upon audience participation and feedback. Community oncologists will be represented on the panels as well. With that in mind, we remind you that we look forward to your submission of real cases to discuss. Using our online case submission form, please submit cases to us by the beginning of January 2020. We will select cases from among those submitted for presentation.

Our primary goal for this meeting, as always, is to provide learners with the latest developments in the multidisciplinary management of cancers.

Space is limited so register early. We look forward to your participation at this meeting.
