·                 Breast Cancer

·                 Cancer Prevention

·                 Cholangiocarcinoma

·                 Health Disparities

 The International Development and Education Award (IDEA) will open October 1, 2011. This award specifically targets early-career oncologists from low- and middle-income countries, and offers the opportunity to attend the ASCO Annual Meeting, be paired with a mentor from the U.S. or Canada, and spend several days at the mentor’€™s institution. Information will soon be available at www.ConquerCancerFoundation.org/IDEA. The deadline to apply for IDEA is January 11, 2012. Please forward this invitation to colleagues who would benefit from this award. Questions can be emailed to [email protected]
