Listen Up! Enhance Your ASCO Annual Meeting Experience at Podcast Listening Station

Apr 30, 2019

By Sarah Hopkins, ASCO Communications

The ASCO Annual Meeting is a bustling 5 days of cutting-edge research presentations, educational sessions, and networking events. To enhance conference takeaways and connect attendees more closely with content from the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting, ASCO will host a podcast listening station onsite at McCormick Place for the duration of the meeting.

The Podcast Listening Station will be located in the McCormick Place East Building’s Lakeside Lounge and will be open from 7 AM to 6 PM daily on May 31 through June 4. ASCO staff will be available at the station to assist new and seasoned podcast listeners alike, answer questions, and guide attendees through ASCO’s podcast series and subscriptions.

Attendees are encouraged to visit the station and listen to podcast episodes presented from a multidisciplinary perspective that will serve as an extension of the robust meeting program. Podcast commentary will further examine research and educational topics discussed during the meeting sessions. Many of ASCO’s podcast series will feature episodes that take a comprehensive look at the presidential theme, “Caring for Every Patient, Learning From Every Patient,” selected by 2018-2019 ASCO president Monica M. Bertagnolli, MD, FACS, FASCO.

Podcasts for every interest 

ASCO made its first foray into podcasting in 2007 with a series of patient-focused programs on Cancer.Net, ASCO’s patient information website. As of 2019, ASCO offers nine podcasts, connecting listeners to commentary on a variety of cancer-related topics ranging from cancer policy and practice to the latest research, therapies, and guidelines, and offering enriching insight into the world of cancer care.

If you are not able to stop by the 2019 ASCO Annual Meeting Podcast Listening Station, you can still enjoy all of ASCO’s podcast series. Subscribe to each series through iTunes or Google Play, or listen online without a subscription; visit to listen and learn more.
