University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center’s Radiation Oncology faculty showed strong and active representation at the annual American Society of Therapeutic Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) annual conference, held September 15-18, 2019 in Chicago.

UH Seidman Cancer Center was represented with highlighted notable speakers, presenters, and moderators. As Chairman of the Department of Radiation Oncology at UH, I was invited to deliver the introduction and congratulations speech for ASTRO's gold medal winner, Dr. Wally Curran from Emory.  Finally, numerous UH faculty members from the department participated in ASTRO committees and councils related to radiation oncology research and education.
