Dear Navigators,

Our enthusiasm for the November 16-19 Academy of Oncology Nurse & Patient Navigators (AONN+) Eighth Annual Conference is mounting! This year’s conference is shaping up to be our biggest and best ever with dynamic keynote speakers, updates on the AONN+ metrics program, certification exam offerings, CEU opportunities, and intriguing poster sessions featuring the culmination of navigation research. This conference features a robust N.E.X.T. (Navigators Exploring Xtra Tracks) educational lineup designed to enhance your clinical knowledge.

I’m simply delighted to see the expansion of the navigation movement as evidenced through our growing navigation community, the growth of this conference, and the overwhelming support of the oncology community at large. You simply cannot miss this meeting! Some highlights from our agenda include:

  • A keynote session entitled Lessons in Love, Loyalty, Courage & Perseverance presented by Will Reeve, son of Christopher Reeve
  • Dr. Edward E. Partridge will present Patient Care Connect: The Real-World Experience of Navigation Within the Oncology Care Model
  • A session called Impact of Health Literacy on Outcomes in Patients with Cancer led by Carla Schaefer, BSN, RN, OCN
  • Our own Sharon Gentry, RN, MSN, CBCN, AOCN, ONN-CG, and Tricia Strusowski, MS, RN, will present Value-Based Cancer Care: Creating Partnerships Between the Oncology Patient Navigator and Oncology/Hematology Physician Practices

The only thing missing is you! If you have never attended one of our annual conferences, I cannot encourage you enough to join us. Invest in your career, invest in yourself, join us in Orlando! REGISTER TODAY at https://annual.aonnonline.org.

See you in Orlando!
