ASTRO's original destination meeting was scheduled for October 25-28 in Miami Beach, FL. But like many other conferences that have decided to go virtual due to the COVID-19 outbreak, ASTRO decided to move to an online format this year.
"This decision was based on our overwhelming concern for the safety and well-being of our members, their patients, exhibitors, staff, and the families of all involved," president Dr. Thomas Eichler said in a statement released by the society on May 4.
The meeting, called Global Oncology: Radiation Therapy in a Changing World, will include traditional offerings such as the Presidential Symposium; plenary, education, and scientific sessions; an interactive exhibit hall; and more than 2,500 abstracts, Eichler said.
