SLACOM - Sociedad Latinoamericana y del Caribe de Oncología Médica
 
 
 
Our vision for the development of a Latin American and Caribbean Society of Medical Oncology is of a future where cancer is prevented, early detected and cured or properly treated, for patients from all over the world and with guidelines of global cancer treatment. Our long-term goal is to build a strong and professional Latin American Medical Oncological Society.
