In celebration of CABTRAC’s 15th annual Retreat, the University of Maryland Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center and CABTRAC planned a great conference this year on the innerharbor in downtown Baltimore with expanded programming. The Retreat began on the morning of Friday, October 11 with the optional Diversity Pipeline Program meeting. Saturday and Sunday general sessions included T32, R25, F & K award workshops, CCSG education topics, and BEST program outcomes – as well as presentations by NCI’s Cancer Training Branch. Invited speakers presented on mental health & resiliency, rigor & responsibility, and diversity & recruiting. In addition to poster presentations and speed mentoring, session topics targeted to trainees included career paths, social media, and mental health. The Retreat was expanded, ending on Sunday, October 13 at 3pm instead of the usual 12 o’clock noon.
