The 2020 SGO Annual Meeting Report

      When we thought of this theme for the 2020 Annual Meeting well over a year ago, we did not anticipate that the vision for the future would entail rapid evolution of how we interact, function, care for patients, and advance science as a Society. And while we were unable to have our Annual Meeting in person, we were given the opportunity to grow as Program Chairs and as a Program Committee to adapt to these new challenges encountered. This was a year that brought about a significant amount of new information from trials around the world with broad-ranging impact on the current and future practice of gynecologic oncology. In this Annual Meeting Report, we highlight the carefully manicured digital retooling of the science that was to be presented at the 2020 SGO Annual Meeting in Toronto. The science was carefully curated, and then broken down and newly formatted into eight themed, digestible webinar sessions, which included distillations for practical clinical applications of each session. Though necessary, it was not ideal to have to cancel our Annual Meeting. Our dutiful Program Committee remained engaged with the responsibility to deliver our data, reported here, to our Society in an organized, timely, and interactive manner.
