CPD is pleased and excited to announce the first annual Multi-Disciplinary Gynecologic Oncology Annual Lecture Series (MyGOALS) Program. The program will be held on March 31st at the Omni King Edward Hotel, Toronto.

Over the past year Program Directors, Drs. Taymaa May and Stephanie Lheureux from the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, have been working with a planning committee to put together a dynamic program.

“With better understanding of the biology and new treatment approaches, the practice is evolving in gynaecological cancers.” “Collaboration between surgical, medical, radiation, and survivorship disciplines is key to improve oncologic outcomes and quality of life for women with gynecologic malignancies.” noted Drs. Lheureux and May.

Program Topics will include:

  • Work-up of newly diagnosed ovarian cancer and survivorship care.
  • New treatment options for first line and recurrent ovarian cancer.
