What can providers and those involved in community oncology gain by being an in-person attendee at the 2022 Community Oncology Conference?

I think that we've all missed seeing each other for the last 2 years, but we've encountered a whole new slew of challenges. The benefit of going to the Community Oncology Alliance meeting is like no other meeting.

It allows you to meet with like-minded individuals that are in community oncology practice—administrators, clinicians, policy makers—and discuss the problems that you've had and formulate collaborative solutions so you can learn from what everyone else is doing. It's a great forum for that and to discuss with people what resources you've developed and share them.
