American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2023 was from April 15 to 19 in Orlando, Florida. It is the focal point of the cancer research community, where scientists, clinicians, other healthcare professionals, survivors, patients, and advocates gather to share the latest advances in cancer science and medicine. It was the 2nd year that I was in the AACR Scientist↔Survivor Program and for the 1st time, I attended the program in person. Here I’ll record my experience.
Meeting with the patient advocates at AACR Scientist↔Survivor Program (Every advocate has been “big” and “famous” in their own area of advocacy. Together, we are a force to be recognized!)
Working with the team project (We are very close after 4 days of working together.)
Poster session (I met some scientists and many advocates. The poster I presented about “scanxiety” was well received.)
Sightseeing (I didn’t go far, only stayed close to the Orlando Convention Centre and hotel. Every place is huge.)
Dinners in Orlando, Florida (I’m a foody, and every place we go, my husband and I have to try different types of food.)
