Guided by Best Practices in Pivotal Times

The theme for our 2018 Annual Conference speaks to the specialized skills and talents that oncology social workers use to improve the quality of life for cancer patients, their families and communities. This knowledge, specialized training, and comfort is highly-valued by those we serve.
The AOSW Annual Conference provides an opportunity for us to gather information, impart knowledge and offer support to each other. The presentations and educational sessions reflect the most important issues facing oncology social workers today.
Atlanta is a warm and welcoming backdrop for our conference. Affectionately known as the capital of the South, Atlanta manages to mix visitor-friendly attractions with significant historic landmarks, elegant homes and a great deal of southern charm! The population is young and creative, and the social scene is refreshingly diverse.
