AACI events bring together cancer center leadership with national cancer research and advocacy groups, industry, and government health agencies. AACI also publishes cancer center event announcements as a benefit to members.
Please note: AACI and its cancer center members are closely monitoring the coronavirus outbreak and following recommendations for social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, many scheduled events have been canceled or postponed.
In the past decade, cancer survivorship has matured into its own cancer discipline addressing the complex and changing needs of the growing population of cancer survivors, which now exceeds 17 million individuals in the United States alone. Cancer survivorship care requires innovative collaboration among experts from multiple healthcare disciplines.
During this two-day virtual symposium on the needs and care for cancer survivors, attendees will hear from clinicians and researchers on the ongoing chronic conditions of cancer survivors, areas of research, as well as ways to improve clinical care.
This symposium will address the entire spectrum of cancer survivorship care: monitoring and management of the late and long term effects ranging from cardiotoxicity to cognitive changes, screening for other malignancies, and promotion of healthy lifestyles.
The event is intended for researchers in epidemiology and medicine who conduct research in the area of cancer survivorship. Additionally, it is intended for primary care providers and medical specialists who are interested in learning more about the ongoing needs of cancer survivors.
