Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure for us to invite you to the 20th Multidisciplinary Management of Cancers meeting to be held virtually on June 19 - 21, 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.

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

We look forward to your virtual participation at this meeting, and appreciate your continued support of our program.
