What is the benefit of attending the Patient-Centered Oncology Care meeting?

Well I think it's a good place to meet a lot of people, a lot of thought leaders in the oncology space. It's a pretty diverse group of people. You have people coming from all different segments of the healthcare sector here. There's not a lot of places where you can come and meet people, interact with high-level people from different segments of the industry. It's usually bifurcated when you go to a lot of meetings and a lot of conferences, and here you have payers, you have people from the PBM [pharmacy benefit manager] community, you have people from the product companies as well—not just the drug companies, but also medical device companies.
