Register Today: 16th AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorites and the Medically Underserved, Sept. 29 – Oct. 2, 2023

ORLANDO – The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), in association with the AACR Minorities in Cancer Research Council, will host the 16th AACR Conference on The Science of Cancer Health Disparities in Racial/Ethnic Minorites and the Medically Underserved at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in Orlando, Sept. 29-Oct. 2, 2023. Registration is complimentary for credentialed members of the media.

This meeting will take place as an in-person event and will not be live-streamed for virtual participation. Lecture sessions will be made available for on-demand viewing approximately 7-10 days after the meeting has concluded.

This conference aims to advance the understanding of, and ultimately help to eliminate, the disparities that represent a major public health problem. Reflecting this transdisciplinary field, professionals from academia, industry, government, and the community will come together to exchange novel ideas, discuss the latest findings in the field, and stimulate the development of new research on cancer health disparities.

Details on the official press program for this conference will be released at a later date.
