We are committed to enhancing the clinical skills of both practicing physicians and those still in training by providing unique educational activities that innovate, rather than duplicating available options.

- Lee Lokey, MD, PLATO Chairman

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the PLATO Foundation to advance the medical education of emerging generations of oncology and hematology practitioners, as well as those in current practice. As therapeutic advances develop, the PLATO Foundation's objectives are centered on meeting the ongoing educational needs of oncologists and hematologists, thus, impacting the treatment of cancer and improving patient outcomes.


Vision Statement

The PLATO Foundation believes it can achieve its charitable goals by providing physicians an opportunity to evaluate and assimilate the latest clinical data presented by expert thought leaders. These data, when placed in the context of current clinical practice, will ultimately result in improved patient outcomes.
