If you are attending the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress or work at a Commission on Cancer (CoC)-accredited cancer program in the Bay area, consider attending the CoC Plenary Session, New Standards—An Open Forum, 1:00–5:00 pm October 27 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel.

This meeting will include presentations on the new CoC surgical standards, quality of care, and CoC accreditation in rural America; presentations by select CoC member organizations, including the American Cancer Society; an update on changes to the National Cancer Database; and what you need to know about the new CoC standards.
