Partners for Progress in Breast Cancer Research and Care
COSA is proud to announce that the 43rd ASM - Partners for Progress in Breast Cancer Research and Care, will be held on the Gold Coast in partnership with the Australia & New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZBCTG), obviously with a focus on breast cancer.
I am delighted to accept the invitation to act as joint convenor for COSA and the ANZBCTG. As many COSA members will know I am an active member of both organisations and have been involved in planning their conferences previously.
COSA’s last breast cancer themed ASM was in 2010 when we also partnered with the ANZBCTG. The meeting was held in Melbourne, at their newly renovated convention centre. During the planning of the meeting, and with the interest from members, more sessions were added to the joint program, which meant the conference was extremely busy. Whilst we are planning for another full event, we expect the format of the Gold Coast venue will allow us to deliver a cohesive, vibrant and welcoming program.
Breast cancer themed meetings are always bumper events for COSA and we hope the partnership with the ANZBCTG will ensure even greater attendance and success next year. We are already planning the sessions and sending invitations to international leaders in the field to confirm their participation with plenty of notice.
So be sure to diarise 15-17 November 2016 now. We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast then.
