Wyndham Grand Istanbul, Levent



 

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce you that the topic of the anuual educational symposium of Turkish Anti-Cancer Foundation has been selected as Head & Neck Cancers.
Treatment of these types of cancers occuring in this specific area of the body which contains most important functions like ingestion, talking, hearing and smelling is quite difficult considering visual integrity and functional immunity.
Obviously these obstacles can be overcome only by multidisiplinary approach.
Taking the advantage of EORTC’s autumn meeting, we have invited the world’s leading scientists on relevant field for lecturing in a daily symposium titled as ‘Head & Neck Cancers; Current Concepts’ which will be held on 16 October, 2014 in Istanbul.
All of our colleagues who are specialized on Head & Neck Cancers are cordially invited to the symposium.

The Board of Turkish Anti-Cancer Foundation
