About this Event

Will Take Place as a Virtual Conference

Due to the growing concerns about COVID-19 and the health and safety recommendations from New York State, we will deliver our annual SPEECH Cancer Health Disparity Conference as a virtual event. The organizing committee is now working to create a virtual conference that will be valuable and engaging for both presenters and attendees.

The Synergistic partnership for Enhancing Equity in Cancer Health (SPEECH), a comprehensive partnership between Temple University/Fox Chase Cancer Center and Hunter College (TUFCCC/HC) invites you to attend our 2nd SPEECH Regional Cancer Health Disparity Conference held at Hunter College of CUNY on May 14th, 2020.

The purpose of this conference is to promote the advancement of research in cancer health disparities and support the development of outstanding underrepresented minority (URM) and diverse students/trainees who are committed to careers in cancer research and to collaboratively engage the community in enhancing quality and feasibility of these efforts.
