EAO-CRC VIRTUAL SUMMIT™ TIMES ANNOUNCED AND REGISTRATION OPEN!
You’re invited to join us for the Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer (EAO-CRC) VIRTUAL Summit on Thursday, April 23rd from 12:00 – 2:30 PM EST!
As some of you may already know, after careful consideration for the health and safety of patients, attendees, the entire cancer community, and global efforts to stem the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the CCF Board of Directors made the difficult decision to postpone the in-person event.
As always, this event will feature renowned pioneers in epidemiology, experts in oncology and visionaries of health policy who are addressing early age onset colorectal cancer on the front lines. And, in keeping with tradition, you will have an opportunity to contribute to the conversation and engage in a LIVE dialogue with our panelists. Your voice will be heard.
A new addition to the agenda is COVID-19: The latest information on what all patients and their caregivers need to know from renowned experts.
We will examine 3 key questions you may have, including:
- What are the current and future impacts of COVID-19 on EAO-CRC
- What are the top EAO-CRC emerging issues
- The impacts of COVID-19 on the cancer care healthcare ecosystem; a policy perspective.
I invite you to take the time today to register for the upcoming Virtual EAO-CRC Summit™ – you won’t regret it. Space is limited and on a first come first serve basis. Registration is free.
STATEMENT REGARDING THE EAO-CRC SUMMIT AND COVID-19
Last updated March 16, 2020 – 4:15 pm
We hope each and every one of you is healthy and doing as well as can be expected in this “new normal” world of ours.
The Colon Cancer Foundation is closely monitoring the continuing developments pertaining to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our concern for the health, safety and security of our community and EAO-CRC Summit™ attendees remains at the core of our mission and is our top priority.
Due to this this morning’s announcements by the Governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut prohibiting gatherings of more than 50 people we have no choice but to postpone the 6th Annual Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Summit™ scheduled for April 23rd, 2020.
This unforeseen and ever evolving situation requires us to adapt however it also gives us the opportunity to innovate. Although we are disappointed by having to postpone the 6th Annual EAO-CRC Summit™ to sometime later this year we are making the exciting decision to host the EAO-CRC Virtual Mini-Summit on April 23rd.
Since our Faculty and attendees had already planned to attend and participate on that date it would be nice to offer them and you a platform to get together digitally. We are looking into a platform that would allow us to host a virtual Mini-Summit. The goal would be to keep our #EAOCRC community engaged, actively working on this critical issue and focused on “Putting Knowledge into Action” and progress.
We have received extensive national and global interest in this year’s event and the commitment on the part of our Sponsors to support the event has been very supportive. We were excited to hold the 6th Annual EAO-CRC Summit™ 2020 in NYC, and it is disappointing that we will not all be able to come together in person in April. We recognize that the new data, exchange of information, and opportunities for collaboration offered by these conferences are highly valued by the cancer research community. With that in mind we are working daily on potential options for rescheduling and will follow up as soon as possible to share the new live event dates.
