We propose to organize a free, virtual conference about cancer-related information and services for members of the general population of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Proposed Conference topics include:
- cancer risk factors
- cancer screening programs
- support services offered by Cancer Care program
- cancer and Indigenous populations
- cancer patients' lived-experiences and priorities regarding research, public engagement/education
Some of these topics are identified as key information gaps by The Public Interest Group on Cancer
We will invite patients, healthcare providers-administrators, and researchers as speakers.
Conference will be open to the public for participation & engagement through a virtual platform to allow province-wide access.
