Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE’s largest healthcare network, is set to host the 10th Emirates Oncology Conference on November 25, 26th and 27th in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. The extensive three-day program aims to gather both leading oncology specialists from the UAE in addition to international physicians, surgeons, and allied health professionals to get fully immersed in the latest research, technologies and innovations in cancer treatments and care.

Cancer continues to be one of the leading causes of morbidity and death worldwide, accounting for at least 10 million deaths on a yearly basis. With that in mind, SEHA sees a pressing need to organize such specialized conferences that place oncology patients at the heart of their purpose. Through SEHA’s commitment to continual medical education, oncology health specialists will have the opportunity to come together to not only network and create professional ties with each other but to also learn of best practices in cancer care and elevate the quality of their medical offering by gaining exposure to cutting-edge research and diagnostic advancements that improve clinical outcomes.

Alongside a power-packed agenda and a vision to have meaningful medical exchanges, the event will set a particular emphasis on the latest research and advances in cancer care. EOC is the most influential oncology platform in UAE for physicians, surgeons, researchers, healthcare providers and industry representatives to participate in and share ideas to build the future of cancer care in UAE.
