The second chapter of the Indian Cancer Congress (ICC) 2017 is an amalgamation of four major national oncology associations and all sub-specialty associations to improve the quality of cancer care in the country.
On behalf of my fellow members of the local and national organizing committees, I cordially invite you to participate in the second chapter, which will be held in Bengaluru, the Silicon Valley of India. However, as oncologists, I am sure all of you will also appreciate that Bengaluru has contributed significantly in some of the revolutionary changes in the field of medical education and it has also united scientists & oncologists for the advancement of medical science.
The organizing committee is working tirelessly to ensure this is a fruitful conference by setting definite goals to improve the academic standards and enter the space of global leadership, and building clear partnerships to progress in the field of oncology across the globe.
Our aim is foster research & treatment of cancer in India, along with establishing professional networks. This will help foster data collation and develop publications to address the needs of oncologists and cancer patients in India.
I do foresee various challenges in the coming years, but let us face them with a courage of conviction knowing that we can make a difference when we are together. On that note, I am delighted to inform you of the theme for the conference this year: Insight Innovation Integration.
I look forward to your active participation, and would like to acknowledge and thank the first committee who put together ICC in 2013. I sincerely hope this second chapter will move forward to greater heights. Look forward to seeing you there!
