This conference, held November 14-15, 2013, in Baltimore, Maryland, brought together 200 thought leaders and stakeholders from the areas of oncology care and research, pharmacy, quality care accreditation, the payer community, patients, and the emerging world of genetic testing and counseling.

In addition to coverage of speakers and panel discussions, the supplement includes an interactive faculty index, which allows the user to connect to conference video featuring that contributor on AJMC-TV, the video channel of www.ajmc.com.
