The Forum “White Nights” helps specialists realize the most important professional aspirations to improve skills and learn from the best, to exchange their knowledge and experience, to communicate with professional soul mates. That is why our Oncology Forum is so popular. It attracts both top experts and young adherents of oncology".
“It all started 15 years ago when our Cancer Center held the first conference “White Nights” dedicated to one localization – breast cancer. However, in 2015 it became clear that we were ready to take the next step. “White Nights” has become an international forum for specialists from all over the world to get together, learn about the latest advances in oncology and raise the quality level of oncology care.”
