Invitation Letter


Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the PTCOG-NA Executive Committee and the UW Medicine/SCCA Proton Therapy Center, we are pleased to welcome you to the Seventh Annual Meeting of PTCOG-NA to be held in Seattle, WA October 1 – 3, 2020. Our meeting will be held at the newly renovated Bell Harbor International Conference Center which offers scenic views of the Olympic Mountains, Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, Elliott Bay, and the Seattle skyline. 

 

The theme of the 7 th annual meeting will be “Precision Particle Therapy”. The recent expansion in access to particle therapy provides the radiation oncologist an unprecedented ability to individualize particle selection to the tumor, multimodality regimen, and patient normal tissue. This meeting will provide an opportunity for scientific discourse and collaborative discussions from thought leaders in clinical and translational radiation oncology, medical physicists, radiation biologists on a wide range of subjects including FLASH radiotherapy, cancer immunotherapy, and the value proposition for particle therapy in 2020. Additionally, we will discuss best-practice as well as the latest evidence-based management paradigms in particle therapy.

 

PTCOG-NA’s mission focuses on scientific exchange, education and on capturing the collaborative opportunities to expand the clinical evidence of particle therapy. PTCOG-NA aims at identifying the most promising strategies to incorporate proton therapy as subspecialty of Radiation Oncology in the interdisciplinary management of our patients.

 

The schedule will allow you to explore the Seattle area throughout the weekend and enjoy our hospitality. 

We look forward to your participation and spending time with you in Seattle and hope you grow from the meeting.

Sincerely,
