We would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in the sixth Symposium on Hepatic Oncology at Whistler (SHOW), to be held as a hybrid event on January 26 to 28, 2023.
We have resurrected this meeting by popular demand. In the past three years GI malignancies has represented a rapidly evolving field with many ‘hot topics’. We will to continue to focus on hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), pancreatico-biliary and metastatic colorectal carcinoma (mCRC). The purpose of SHOW is to present practical cross disciplinary perspectives on the treatment of liver cancers given recent literature and developments. As such, we have established four chairs, Dr. Andrew Kennedy of Radiation Oncology, Dr. Peter Kim of Hepatobiliary Surgery, Dr. Wendy Lam of Medical Oncology and Dr. David Liu of Interventional Radiology for this conference to foster a collaborative approach to patient care through didactic talks, case presentations and panel discussion.
At its core, we have selected faculty both locally and internationally that have worked extensively in the context of multidisciplinary management of complex hepatobiliary oncology. We will also provide a Canadian perspective on the topics.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you to SHOW 2023!
