The Florida Society of Clinical Oncology (FLASCO) invites FLASCO members to submit abstracts detailing your research endeavors for presentation. The presenter/author may
submit their abstract to the FLASCO Executive Director, Dorothy Phillips (dorothy.green@flasco.org), to be forwarded to the FLASCO Ad Hoc Abstract Committee for review.
Abstracts of superior quality will be selected by the FLASCO Ad Hoc Abstract Committee for presentation and for publication on the FLASCO website. The FLASCO Committee strongly
encourages the submission of abstracts on research directly influencing the cancer health and outcomes of Floridians.
