News from the Annual SGO Meeting- April Chat

The Society of Gynecologic Oncologists met in Florida at the end of March for their annual meeting. During tonight's chat we asked the doctors and researchers these questions:

T1a: What SGO presentation did you find of most interest?

T1b: What SGO presentation do you think will interest patients most? What were some of the studies of note?

T2: In what areas is new research lacking? 

T3: Is there anything patients/survivors/advocates need to take immediate note of?

T4: Were there other session topics that resonated for you?

You can find the transcript of the night's talk here and analytics here.
