Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation President Thomas K. Weber, MD, FACS, is pleased to present the Second Annual Early Age Onset of Colorectal Cancer Summit.
This event will bring together early age onset (EAO) colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors, loved ones, health care professionals and researchers from across the country. 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 care professional’s opportunities to leverage each other’s 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 course will include lectures, workshops and panel discussions designed to facilitate multidisciplinary consensus regarding the priorities of EAO-CRC prevention, clinical care, quality of life and research moving forward.
The Summit will feature keynote addresses from leading clinicians, epidemiologists and researchers from the nation’s leading cancer centers and advocacy organizations including Boston University Medical Center, Columbia University, Harvard School of Public Health, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York University, Cancer Center, the UC Berkley Institute of Public Health, the University of Colorado, the University of Pittsburgh, Tulane University, the American Cancer Society, Bowel Cancer UK and Michael’s Mission.
