Call for Abstracts

You're Invited!

Submit an abstract for the Sixth Annual Association for Value-Based Cancer Care (AVBCC) Conference. This is an opportunity to share research, programs, and results with your peers. This session will facilitate communication among the various professionals and programs to advance the knowledge of all our members and those in attendance.

To Participate

To participate, please submit your abstract to AVBCC using our online submission system. E-mailed or faxed submissions will not be accepted.

All submission(s) will be peer-reviewed and the abstract author(s) will be notified of acceptance for poster display and/or presentation at the 2016 Conference. We look forward to the discussions that all those in attendance will have with the authors and representatives of the selected posters. All ideas are welcome for consideration.
