This virtual and in-person symposium is presented by AIM at Melanoma and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Founded in 1898 and operating from a 29-acre campus on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) near downtown Buffalo, New York, Roswell Park today remains the only comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Upstate New York, and one of only four NCI-designated comprehensive cancer centers in all of New York. In the past year, Roswell Park teams cared for more than 46,000 patients. Roswell Park helps set international standards in cancer care through its role as a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, and consistently earns patient-satisfaction scores that are among the highest in the country.
