Carey Anders, MD, UNC Lineberger member and associate professor, was a presenter and moderator at The 13th Annual Round Asia Oncology Forum (RAOF) in Hong Kong on August 29 – 30, 2014. The theme of this year’s forum was “Expanding our armory in personalized cancer treatment.”
The 2014 ROAF agenda focused primarily on breast, lung and gastrointestinal cancers. Topics included advances in imaging technology, immunotherapy, genomics and targeted therapies. Dr. Anders presented on the topic of triple negative breast cancer. She also served as a moderator for the first day’s plenary session.
RAOF has been staged annually in different Asian countries since 2002. The forum provides a venue for top physicians and researchers to exchange knowledge and breakthroughs in the field of oncology. The one and a half day scientific program was designed to cover the breadth of oncology from epidemiology to cancer treatment, prevention and palliative care.
The goal of RAOF is to foster collaborative relationships among the delegates and promote leading edge ideas in oncology treatment.
