  • Overview

    As new evidence continues to be published and presented at scientific conferences, oncologists are finding it more difficult to stay on top of new information. That’s why Drs. Eileen O'Reilly and Paul Oberstein are here to review selected abstracts from the 2019 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting… but the catch is that they only have 3 minutes to cover each update in this clinical countdown discussion. Can they beat the clock?
