Description

2018 Colorectal Cancer Summit

The 2018 Indiana Cancer Consortium (ICC) Colorectal Cancer Summit will take place on May 15 at Clark Memorial Hospital's Conference Center located in Jeffersonville, IN.

In partnership with the American Cancer Society, the Indiana Cancer Consortium's District 9 Regional Cancer Control Coalition is hosting the 2018 Colorectal Cancer Summit. This free event will bring together healthcare professionals to educate and collaborate on addressing barriers and successes to colorectal cancer screenings and treatment.

An article written by Dr. Rebecca Siegel and colleagues discusses the three "hotspots" in the United States with the highest colon cancer death rates. Unfortunately, counties in Indiana's District 9 sits in one of these hotspots. In collaboration with our Kentucky partners, join us as we focus on how the Indiana and Kentucky cancer communities can address the pressing challenges we currently face and will provide a vision where collective action can make a difference.

Attending the Colorectal Cancer Summit is a significant step in reducing our collective cancer burden. We look forward to hosting both Indiana and Kentucky residents and engaging in cross-collaboration and networking with our region's talented, knowledgeable, and passionate cancer advocates. Please send questions to Rishika Chauhan by emailing Rishika@IndianaCancer.org.

Registration for this event is free and lunch will be provided.
