On behalf of ASCO, thank you to the ASCO and JSMO faculty for your dedication to sharing knowledge with young oncologists. Thank you to the staff members who kept things running smoothly.
From what I heard, there was an impressive amount of interaction and interest from the participants, and this speaks to the high quality of content that was delivered and also the exceptional matching that JSMO did to select the participants.
We appreciate all of your efforts to make this second YOW a success.
