Next up on the docket for Colon Cancer Awareness Month (after The World’s Largest Booty Shake of course!) is our third annual Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Symposium on Sunday, March 12. This singular event brings together leading physicians and researchers with survivors and caregivers in a uniquely interactive one-day course designed to address the breadth of issues facing young adult colorectal cancer patients and their families.
Phew! But seriously.
Whatever your connection to this disease, we as advocates have a responsibility to educate ourselves about the alarming increase in early age onset colorectal cancer and to spread awareness of this terrible – but reversible – trend. This Symposium will educate, motivate, and empower its attendees – and we hope you will join us.
We are honored this year to once again have the sponsorship support of Michael’s Mission, an incredible organization that is focused on improving the quality of life and treatment options for those suffering from colorectal cancer through education, research and patient support. This year’s Symposium – for the first time – is free to all attendees thanks to our generous host, the Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Medical Center.
So, come for the free food, tchotchkes, and cheeky step and repeat complete with photo props. Stay for the critical stuff:
1. Up-to-the-minute content
The world of colorectal cancer treatment and prevention is ever-evolving. So too are the innovative ideas and technical tools to support those who are battling the disease. This symposium features the latest advances in all aspects of early age onset colorectal cancer care and survivorship.
2. Top-notch participants
Not to humble-brag, but you will be hearing from those at the tippity-top of this field. This Symposium is a one-day master class in medicine, research, and every other aspect of the EAO-CRC landscape. Nothing inspires hope like hearing from those at the forefront of this critical fight…
3. Ground-breaking collaboration and genuine interactivity
… and having the opportunity to speak directly to and work collaboratively with these brilliant minds. After all, we are all stronger together.
