51th Congress of the “Société Internationale d’Oncologie Pédiatrique
The 51th Congress of the “Société Internationale d’Oncologie Pédiatrique” (SIOP) will be held in October 23-26, 2019, in Lyon, France.
Ort Lyon, France
Fifty years ago, in November 1969 in Madrid, Spain, our masters decided to set up the SIOP community. It was not for glory or celebrity; they realized that sharing experience was an absolute necessity in order to accelerate research and to develop more efficient and effective treatments. Since this day, International SIOP meetings have maintained the same spirit. The caregivers, such as nurses, surgeons, paediatric and radiation oncologists involved in the care of children and teenagers with cancer and their parents from all around the world meet every year to share results, experience, difficulties, progress and new tools, enriching each other. It is a unique and magical event where each caregiver can add their personal touch to improve knowledge or meet their seniors to learn more. It is our duty to pursue what I think we should call the “SIOP attitude”. I am honoured to continue this enriching story with the 51st SIOP meeting in Lyon.
