Douglas Flora: It’s inspiring to be part of such a forward-thinking community

Douglas Flora shared on LinkedIn:     .

“Always equal parts discovery and excitement, ASCO’s yearly meeting never disappoints. From major scientific advances and trial results earning standing ovations to insightful panels and case sessions, the overall takeaway to me was clear: there has never been a better day in human history to have OR fight cancer. All-time best survivals, jaw-dropping Kaplan-Meier curves, and continuous advances in our understanding of the emperor of all maladies.

As an AI optimist, I was thrilled to see the lightbulbs going on for many colleagues during the AI sessions. I was proud to be a Faculty presenter alongside Drs. Judy Gichoya, Martina Murphy, and Shaalan Beg at our session entitled ‘Harness Artificial Intelligence to Enhance Patient–Physician Relationships.’

The energy and enthusiasm at ASCO are unmatched, and it’s inspiring to be part of such a forward-thinking community. What were your key takeaways from ASCO this year? Let’s keep the conversation going!”
