NAPT 2020 FAQ
The National Association for Proton Therapy has quickly transitioned our annual conference to a virtual event to ensure the safety of our attendees and the community. We believe it is vital to offer our members and the proton therapy community an opportunity to connect, stay engaged and share important information and resources especially during this critical time. Please join us for our live conference on July 24th as we
EMBRACE THE FUTURE TOGETHER.
What is a virtual conference?
A virtual conference is hosted entirely over the Internet. It will allow attendees to access live and hear presentations from their computers. Attendees participate through a conference website designed specifically for the virtual conference. The site is where you will watch conference presentations and participate with questions and comments in real time.
Who should attend?
Physicians, nurses, therapist, administrators, vendors, developers, contractors, and anyone interested in Proton Beam Therapy. Is your health system considering proton therapy? This is the opportunity to meet technology partners, learn about this technology and connect with experts in the field. Because no travel is required and the conference is accessible from computers, iPads, and even cell phones, it is a great opportunity for first time attendees to learn about the proton therapy community.
