The objectives of this meeting are to review and discuss between specialties the latest developments in both aesthetic and cancer care of the face.  Each specialty may focus on particular aspects of the face and neck and offer relative strengths and advantages in that area.  It is the goal of the organizers to enhance that knowledge through inter-disciplinary discussion, lectures, and question-and-answer sessions, gaining insight into other perspectives and approaches available in treating similar conditions.
