The Prevent Cancer Foundation is excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2011 Dialogue for Action on Colorectal Cancer Screening: Prevention Now for a Healthier Tomorrow. We expect primary care physicians, gastroenterologists, radiologists, surgeons, nursing professionals, public health educators and administrators, health researchers, third-party payers, advocates and survivors from across the country to be in attendance. The conference will be held March 23-25 in Baltimore, MD.
The 2011 Dialogue is the 13th in a series of annual national conferences convened by the Prevent Cancer Foundation. It will examine health care reform and the emerging health care system from the perspective of CRC screening.
We are delighted that Dan Heath, co-author of Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard and Made to Stick will speak to us about change, a topic greatly affecting public health and preventive services in these times.
The Prevent Cancer Foundation is dedicated to the mission of reducing the number of people who die from colorectal cancer in the United States. It has been estimated that 142,570 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2010, and 51,370 people will die it. The goal of the conference is to increase colorectal cancer screening and provide tools and resources to use in planning and implementing education and screening programs in their communities and work environments.
