15 health journalists to attend the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid

European School of Oncology (ESO) will cover journalists’ travel, accommodation and subsistence costs

ESO is collaborating with the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) to offer 15 health journalists a unique opportunity to attend the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid, Spain (26-30 September 2014), to hear the leaders in clinical research talk about progress in treating cancer, including successes and setbacks in moving towards ‘precision medicine’, where treatments are finely tuned to the individual patient, and the molecular characteristics of their cancer and the host tissue.
ESO will cover journalists’ travel, accommodation and subsistence costs. It will also provide a briefing session before the conference to help journalists get the most out of their attendance. A roundtable discussion will be organised at the close of conference where journalists can quiz leading researchers, policy makers, politicians and patient advocates, about the implications of these latest scientific and medical developments within the context of today’s cash-strapped health services.
