INCA Treasurer Mark McDonnell and INCA Executive Director Teodora Kolarova participated in the Annual ENETS Advisory Board on 14 November in Vienna to make sure the patient perspective is front and central to all discussions. A full day dedicated to issues of key significance for the development of NET expertise with a vision to provide optimal care to NET patients, advance meaningful practice-changing research on a global scale and ensure active patient involvement in setting research priorities.

Teodora Kolarova reported on INCA achievements in 2019 under the organization’s three strategic pillars, highlighting the benchmark success of the awareness campaign around NET Cancer Day 2019, the Unmet Needs initiative with ENETS Best Poster Award in the Clinical Category, and the first open access publication of the full article capturing the survey results – in the highly-reputed International Journal of Cancer, as well as the expansion of INCA to 6 continents.
