This summit is co-sponsored by the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and Michael’s Mission. It is a novel meeting designed for health care providers and researchers as well as Early Age Onset (EAO) Colorectal Cancer (CRC) survivors and their families. 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 ground breaking program will, for a second year, provide both survivors and health professionals opportunities to leverage each others insights and provide an opportunity for all to hear leading clinicians and scientists on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, genomics and quality of life preserving treatment options for EAO-CRC.
The summit will include lectures as well as workshops and panel discussions designed to facilitate multidisciplinary consensus regarding the priorities of EAO-CRC prevention, clinical care and research moving forward.
