The University of North Carolina has multiple posters accepted to the Gynecologic Oncology General Poster Session at this year’s ASCO meeting. Let’s take a virtual walk through several of these abstracts.
It’s Saturday morning, and ASCO is fully underway. I started the morning at the immense poster exhibit hall. Although it is easy to feel intimidated by the size of the room and number of posters, I find that walking the poster hall can actually be one of the most personal and intimate ways to experience the ASCO meeting.
