10th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology - Vancouver, BC, Canada October 20-22, 2013
This year’s conference theme, Translational Science in Integrative Oncology: “From Bedside to Bench to Best Practices”, promotes not only the development of an evidence base for those complementary therapies and practices currently being used in integrative oncology, but the rapid translation of that evidence into standard care and best practice guidelines. International experts and multidisciplinary oncology practitioners from around the world, including stakeholders from virtually every major cancer center in the US and Canada, will convene to discuss the translation and evolution of evidence-based integrative oncology in practice, the steadily growing science base, and its continued rise in popularity as patients demand a whole person approach to cancer care that addresses the mind, body and spirit.
Join us as we come together to learn about new findings from several scientific disciplines, learn about the latest advancements made in the field, discuss the most cutting-edge science, participate in a moderated debate, present our work, build collaborations, and learn from each other--all of which allow us to transform cancer care internationally.

SAR’s January 2012 Think Tank
In an effort to synthesize and harness the momentum from our 2010 conference, the SAR Board of Directors met on January 19-22, 2012 at Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA to draft a White Paper focusing on the comparative use of electrical and manual acupuncture within the continuum of basic science mechanisms, clinical research, and practitioner usage. This effort built on our previous White Paper conference, which culminated in the publication “Paradoxes in acupuncture research: strategies for moving forward,” published in 2011 (Langevin et al, Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine 2011).
