4/22/15 – Unable to attend ACRO 2015 in DC? Then register for online streaming!

Unable to attend ACRO 2015 this year in Washington, D.C.? Then why not log in to attend all the plenary sessions live streamed over the Internet? ACRO is experimenting with "virtual" attendance this year for those who are unable to attend the conference physically. We do not want you to miss the key discussions that will bring the latest clinical approaches to a wide range of cancer sites: CNS, H&N, GI/GU, GYN and breast. You will not want to miss the Dr. Luther Brady Lecture given by Dr. Anthony Zietman, on Friday (2-3 p.m.), or the session that follows on the Economics of Practice, featuring Dr. Allen Lichter, Executive Director of ASCO (3-5:30 p.m.). This is free to members! You will have 24/7 access to the site on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, to attend only what you want, when you can. Also, each day will be replayed in the evening so you can check in from home. You will also be able to earn CME credits for the live (nonreplay) viewing. Nonmember colleagues can also attend for $99, so pass the word along. This is the best deal in CME for radiation oncology this year.
