We attended ASCO 2019. ASCO is the American Society of Clinical Oncology. ASCO hosts, next to many other activities around oncology, an annual meeting.
This meeting provides clinical updates and educational sessions for oncologists, nurses, researchers and everybody interested in oncology from around the world. The 2019 meeting hosted more than 40’000 participants, an increase of ca. 30% over the last 7 years. The growth of participants indicates the level of innovation and investments which flow into the sector. These aspects stayed the same compared to previous years. However, a lot of other things have changed in 2019.
Did you know that clinical care is estimated to affect only 20% of our health well-being?
The conflict in the Ukraine is the first war in a fully interconnected world, wired more closely than ever before by trade, supply chains and financial markets. As such, while the drama is occurring within Ukraine’s frontiers, the consequences of Putin’s “special military operation” are being felt across the globe.
