This year’s conference will feature the most innovative science in cancer health disparities across the entire cancer continuum. Each Plenary Session will focus on a section of the cancer continuum and is designed to include presentations from the top basic, translational, clinical, and population researchers to highlight multidisciplinary approaches to cancer health disparities. Additional sessions will address challenges and opportunities in precision medicine, interventional studies in special populations, and resources and initiatives in cancer health disparities research. In addition to invited speakers, those who submit top ranking abstracts will have the opportunity to be selected to present “hot topic” oral presentations in the Plenary Sessions. By promoting the exchange of novel ideas and information between professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community, this conference will harness the potential and maximize the many opportunities for bringing research on health disparities from bench to bedside to community, and back again. Register for this conference to join the top cancer health disparities researchers this November in Atlanta, Georgia.
