During the 2020 ASTRO Annual Meeting special sessions were held that provided ASTRO members and experts in the field a platform to share their experiences through the art of storytelling. The sessions included stories from ASTRO’s Committee on Health Equity, Diversity and Inclusion addressing disparities and access issues. In addition, ASTRO members were invited to share their stories with the membership on the ROhub and certain stories were selected to be highlighted on the Annual Meeting website ASTRO Voices section.
