Hudis’s Address at ASCO 2014
On Value & Commitment

My name is Clifford Hudis, and I am a medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center where I am chief of the Breast Medicine Service. I am also professor of medicine at the Weill Cornell Medical College and president of ASCO.

This may be the only meeting in Chicago where neither he nor Ari are the most famous of the Emanuel brothers!

Our society continues to grow, making this a record-setting year with more than 5,100 submitted abstracts and 33,000 attendees.
