I am pleased to announce the 2023 American Brachytherapy Society’s Annual Meeting will be June 22 – 24 at the JW Marriott in Vancouver, British Columbia. Our Annual Meeting will be designed around the theme, "Delivering the Right Care for Everyone: Advancing Brachytherapy Access for All".

Mitchell Kamrava, our Scientific Program Chair, along with Co-Chair Beth Anderson, is putting together a very enriching and stimulating program focused on generating awareness on advancing brachytherapy access for all. I promise an exciting meeting where we will step out of established conventions and shake things up. . Hands-on educational opportunities will be provided, interactive sessions with experts working through cases will be offered, CME will be included free of charge, technologies will be showcased, controversy will be embraced, and fun will be had. It’s time to showcase the tried and true which have been the cornerstone of our profession from its inception. We will again offer the Judith Stitt Best Abstract Awards highlighted in the plenary session. The Resident Travel Awards will continue to encourage resident involvement and the Henschke award will be presented, and of course, our Industry Partners will be present over the course of the meeting to demonstrate state-of-the-art equipment, software, and services of value to radiation oncologists practicing in this field of medicine. Be prepared as this year is going to be one to remember.

We hope that you will join us. The meeting will offer a tremendous educational experience as well as a chance to relax along with our international colleagues, we invite you to participate in an incredible worldwide gathering of leaders in the field of brachytherapy.
