Physicians' Education Resource (PER), a prominent medical education company that specializes in oncology and hematology conferences and programs, is now part of ArcMesa Educators

Physicians’ Education Resource (PER), a prominent medical education company that specializes in oncology and hematology conferences and programs, is now part of ArcMesa Educators, a division of the parent company of OncLive.

The merger, announced in early May, includes PER’s CancerLearning.OncLive.com Website, a variety of print and online accredited medical education activities, and relationships with thought leaders interested in sharing their knowledge with colleagues at conferences.

“This acquisition enhances our ability to bring oncology healthcare professionals the very best access to the latest information in oncology research and technology,” said Peter Ciszewski, president of the Oncology Specialty Group at Intellisphere, which publishes OncLive. “It opens additional avenues of communication that complement our print magazines and Internet offerings.”

“We are particularly excited to begin working with some of the most respected names in oncology,” Ciszewski added.

PER will operate through ArcMesa Educators, which is part of MJH & Associates, Inc, based in Plainsboro, New Jersey.
