The ACRO PROTON THERAPY SYMPOSIUM – Baltimore will provide proton therapy teams the most current clinical information that can be taken back to the clinic and used immediately to improve patient care.

The symposium will be a relaxed atmosphere with a combination of talks and panels, with plenty of Q&A, where peers can converse to expand the clinical knowledge base of this therapeutic option for cancer treatment.
