Our Beat Childhood Cancer Research Consortium 16th Annual Meeting happened Feb 28-March 1 at the sweetest place on earth! This conference brings together physicians and coordinators from our 50+ hospitals across the US and Canada as well as donors, advocates, research collaborators and industry sponsors.

It is so important to have these meetings to reflect on what accomplishments were made in 2023 and what plans and goals the Consortium has for 2024! It is invaluable to meet in person to exchange ideas, design research projects, and push the boundaries of what we can do as a group.

We want to thank everyone that attended this year both in person and virtually and we hope to see you there next year!
