CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Physicians’ Education Resource®, LLC (PER®), a worldwide leading resource for continuing medical education (CME), will host the live CME-accredited Medical Crossfire®: Optimizing Pathological Assessment in Lung Cancer: A Focus on Patients with EGFR Mutations, as a satellite symposium adjunct to the American Society for Clinical Pathology 2019 Annual Meeting. The program will take place on Friday, Sept. 13, from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the Phoenix Convention Center, West Building, room 211A-211B, in Arizona.
The Medical Crossfire® will be chaired by Lynette M. Sholl, M.D., associate professor, pathology, Harvard Medical School, and associate pathologist, Brigham and Women's Hospital.
“We look forward to this exciting, fast-paced Medical Crossfire style symposium at this year’s American Society of Clinical Pathology meeting,” said Phil Talamo, president of PER®. “The treatment of NSCLC in today’s landscape requires an interdisciplinary pathology and oncology team for the appropriate care of patients, and this program will highlight that interaction through discussion of a variety of clinical scenarios.”
The recommendations and guidelines for pathologic assessment for patients with EGFR-mutated lung cancer continue to evolve. This symposium will feature medical oncologists and pathologists in a panel discussion about the pathologic assessment of lung cancer to guide management of the disease. Cutting edge data will be presented as case-based dialogue between multidisciplinary faculty to assess the clinical implication of histologic and EGFR mutational testing results in relation to planning first-line and later treatment regimens.
The expert faculty panel includes the following experts:
- Jonathan W. Goldman, M.D., associate professor, medicine, hematology and oncology; associate director of drug development; and director of clinical trials in thoracic oncology, UCLA Health.
- Balazs Halmos, M.D., M.S., professor of clinical medicine, director of thoracic oncology and director of clinical cancer genomics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center.
- Ignacio I. Wistuba, M.D., professor and chair, department of translational molecular pathology and Anderson clinical faculty chair for cancer treatment and research, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.
