Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer

Since 1969, women’s health care professionals have convened at the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO)’s Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer® to discuss the latest science in the field, receive educational programming, and to network. The 48th SGO Annual Meeting in 2017 will continue to be the premier educational and scientific event for those who treat and care for women with gynecologic cancer.
