Lung Cancer continues to be a growing global health threat, which the IASLC 2019 Latin America Conference on Lung Cancer (LALCA 2019) intends to examine by facilitating international and national speaker discussions on the advances in science in treating and preventing cancer and thoracic malignancies worldwide, and especially in Latin America.
With tobacco use being a dominant cause of mortality worldwide, LALCA will once again host the Cancer Control Program and Tobacco Forum, scheduled for Thursday, October 17. Building on the success of the previous LALCA Conferences in Peru 2014, Panama 2016 and Argentina 2018, the IASLC School of Oncology will host an intense workshop for young researchers, clinicians and trainee physicians from different disciplines including medical oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pulmonary, radiology and pathology. The successful Round Table Discussions will continue in 2019, providing delegates the unique opportunity to discuss specific topics directly with international leaders and local experts.
IASLC would be thrilled for you to join such a stimulating and engaging Conference hosted in the cosmopolitan and cultured capital, of Mexico, Mexico City (Ciudad de México).
Simultaneous translation English <> Spanish will be provided for all sessions.
Located in the Valley of Mexico, Mexico City is one of the oldest cities in the Americas, built on an island of Lake Texcoco by the Aztecs in 1325. It is a popular destination for many foreign tourists as it is steeped in rich history. Famous landmarks in the Historic Center include the Plaza de la Constitución (Zócalo), the main central square, ancient Aztec temple ruins Templo Mayor, all of which are situated among many modern architectural structures.
Mexico City is also renowned for some of the world's best gastronomy. Last year, two Mexico City restaurants made it to the World's Top 50 list of best restaurants including; Quintonil (Number 11) and Pujol (Number 13). Don't miss your chance to experience all that Mexico City has to offer!
We look forward to welcoming you to Mexico City and to the IASLC LALCA 2019 Conference!
