If you are attending the ASCO Annual Meeting, you will have the opportunity to attend many presentations that will help to improve cancer care. But even if you aren’t able to make it to Chicago, you can still learn from colleagues by tuning in to ASCO’s hashtag on Twitter, #ASCO15.

By typing #ASCO15 into the Twitter search box, you’ll be able to follow the happenings “live.” Colleagues, industry staff, and advocates will be tweeting from the Meeting to enrich the learning experience. You will find many people worth following for updates since the ASCO Annual Meeting is one of the most robust academic meetings sharing new research using social media.

If you want to participate in Meeting-related conversations rather than just read the headlines, you can respond and share your own views via Twitter, provided you have an account on the site.

Whether you are simply reading tweets or actively tweeting, you can also follow or share news from #ASCO15 as it relates to specific fields of interest by using disease-specific hashtags to filter the Twitter results. Here are some examples:
