Please join us for the 3rd CANADIAN MULTIDISCIPLINARY HEPATOBILIARY CANCER CONFERENCE (CMHCC) taking place on Friday October 4 and Saturday October 5th, 2024 at the Omni King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

We are happy to announce that we have added a focus on biliary cancer for CMHCC 2024.

This informative conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to participate in presentations from international experts in the field of Multidisciplinary Hepatobiliary Cancer. The scope of this meeting will highlight both recent research findings elucidating the pathophysiology of these diverse diseases, as well as changes in therapeutic advances that have had a large impact in the management of our patients.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person for this dynamic and educational event!
