President’s Message

Selamat datang & Welcome

This year’s Annual Scientific Conference of the Malaysian Oncological Society 2017 (ASCOMOS 2017) will be held at the Pullman Hotel in Kuching, Sarawak – Land of the Hornbill from 8-10th December 2017. This is the first time such a meeting is being held in Sarawak and we, the organising committee, are very excited with this development and are working very hard to ensure its success. We are grateful for the help that we are getting from the Sarawak Convention Bureau to realise this meeting. We also hope that with this meeting, there is some focus on the issues affecting patients with cancer in general and in Sarawak particularly.

The scientific programme promises to be very relevant to the practice of oncology in the country with a combination of workshops and state of the art lectures. The combination of experienced local and prominent overseas speakers will ensure a balanced discourse. We are also collaborating with the National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM), Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) Sarawak and Cancer Research Malaysia (CRM) to bring together primary care doctors as who are first responders to a potential cancer diagnosis. We hope that with this approach cancers are recognised early where treatment is most impactful.

You would also be able to meet like-minded individuals who have the welfare of cancer patients at the core of their practice. Contact and collaborations can then be forged for future cooperation to improve the overall care of cancer patients and survivors alike.

Last but not least, the conference dinner promises to be a spectacular display of cultural diversity of Sarawak that we hope everyone can enjoy and relish.

So, do join us in Kuching, Sarawak from 8-10th December 2017. Hope to see everyone then.
