Innovate, Collaborate: Transform is the theme of the Annual Meeting. How will your company play a part?
Each year at ASTRO, attendees are introduced to the top technological advances the field has to offer. This year, we want to make sure they know all about what you have planned well before they enter the doors of McCormick Place in Chicago. We know that more than half of you list brand awareness as one of your top priorities during the Annual Meeting. We invite you to begin building that excitement about your brand well before you arrive on-site with one of our many offerings.
ASTRO Academy now serves as the go-to hub for both online education activities and all post live meeting credits and certificates. ASTRO Academy provides more than 100 online courses covering more than 18 disease site areas for radiation oncology.
