The North American Symposium on Late Complications After Childhood Cancer (formerly known as the 16th International Conference on Long-Term Complications of Treatment of Children and Adolescents for Cancer) will convene on June 20-22, 2019, at the Emory Conference Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The biennial symposium provides a venue for the multidisciplinary exchange of innovative ideas among clinicians and researchers engaged in pediatric cancer survivorship clinical care and/or research. The symposium historically includes global participation of approximately 300 attendees from Europe, Asia, Oceania, South America, Canada and the United States.
The 2019 symposium will focus on two themes: interventions to remediate late effects and emerging late effects of novel therapies. Keynote speakers will provide overviews of the conference themes. Highly ranking abstracts featuring research results related to the conference themes as well as other relevant survivorship topics will be presented in the conference oral plenary and poster sessions.
