SAVING LIVES THROUGH APPLYING KNOWLEDGE

This event will bring together leading clinicians, scientists as well as early age onset (EAO) colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors and caregivers from across the country and internationally. The program will provide extensive opportunities for participants to advance their understanding of the rapidly increasing incidence of rectal and colon cancer among young adults under 50 years of age in the U.S. and abroad.

This groundbreaking program will, for a sixth consecutive year, provide all participants the opportunity to hear and question leading clinicians and researchers on the lifesaving potential of timely clinical risk assessment/family cancer health history; earliest possible stage diagnosis, optimal, fertility-preserving clinical care, as well as the latest information regarding national and international EAO CRC incidence trends, pathogenesis, and genetics. In addition, this year’s program will present a “Research in Progress” segment providing an update on currently NCI-funded and planned EAO CRC research projects from across America and Europe.

Again this year, important Keynote Sessions based on needs-assessments from our survivor community will address challenging issues such as EAO-CRC Focused Survivorship Programs: How Are They Measuring Up?, specifically requested by our Young Adult CRC Survivor Program Advisory Group.

The EAO-CRC SUMMIT™ will include lectures, optional working groups and panel discussions designed to advance the “state-of-the-science” addressing EAO-CRC. Our faculty will once again be world-class speakers representing leading academic medical centers with major additional inspiring programmatic contributions from the Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Survivor Community of the United States and beyond.
