The Arkansas Cancer Summit is an annual event hosted by the Arkansas Cancer Coalition (ACC) to showcase the recent progress that Coalition partners have made towards meeting the goals and objectives of the state’s comprehensive cancer plan. The forum provides an opportunity for us to celebrate, reflect, network, share information and build new skills in order to strengthen the fight against cancer.
Our theme this year is “Navigating the Cancer Continuum: Prevention to Survivorship.”
Building on last year’s Summit where we examined evidence and strategies in order to prepare for a successful fight against cancer in Arkansas, participants will deepen their understanding of the latest in best practices on everything from prevention to survivorship. Focused sessions will take a close look at colorectal cancer, patient navigation, survivorship and tobacco cessation. Again this year, we will offer nine highly-interactive discussion groups to examine how the state is making progress in meeting the goals and objectives of the Arkansas Cancer Plan.
Prepare yourself for a day energized with a mix of breakout discussions, panel presentations, keynote deliveries, physical activity sessions and an award ceremony.
No matter your profession, you will learn and arm yourself for the fight during Summit XVII: advocates, academics, clinicians, community representatives, health care providers, families, legislators, students, survivors and the general public are all invited to attend.
Summit XVII promises to be the best one yet!
