About the Community Oncology Conference

The annual Community Oncology Conference is an unprecedented coming together of community oncology professionals completely focused on addressing the unique issues they face in ensuring that patients have access to high-quality, affordable, cutting-edge cancer care close to where they live and work.

Organized for community oncology by community oncology, the Community Oncology Conference is the essential annual meeting to help community oncologists improve patient care, grow their practice, and advocate for a strong future.

This is the only annual conference developed exclusively for community oncology providers, administrators, staff, pharmacists, nurses, and others to highlight the unique, real-world opportunities before community oncology.

Returning Virtually for 2021!

After careful consideration for the health and safety of patients, attendees, the entire cancer community, and global efforts to stop the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Board of Directors of COA have made the obvious decision to once again host the annual Community Oncology Conference virtually.

Join us April 8-9, 2021 as virtual presenters across the country share valuable content and lessons with the broad oncology community. Cancer and all the issues we deal with in the trenches hasn’t stopped during this COVID-19 crisis – and we won’t either!

Building upon record attendance from 2020, the 2021 Community Oncology Conference will be bigger and better than ever. We have a fantastic educational agenda planned that will truly benefit our nationwide workforce of community oncology professionals and allied industries. It will be delivered through a cutting-edge webcast system with engaging and interactive features.
