The 14th in a series of annual national conferences convened by the Prevent Cancer Foundation, the 2012 Dialogue will tackle the issue of healthcare delivery in general and of colorectal cancer screening in particular at this critical time in our nation’s history. Other topics include:

  • Ways to keep increasing CRC screening rates
  • Cancer screening in primary-care practice
  • Issues in the screening modalities of stool-based testing and colonoscopy
  • Implications of the oral arguments before the Supreme Court on the Health Care Reform Law
  • And what promises to be a lively discussion about perspectives on cancer screening in the media!

We are delighted that Susan Dentzer, editor-in-chief of Health Affairs and former health analyst on the PBS News Hour, will moderate the keynote panel “Health Care of the Future: Keeping Quality Up and Costs Down.” We are also excited to announce that Bob Baker, a CRC survivor who biked 4,000 miles across the country this year, will speak on the importance of CRC screening.

Continuing education credits for physicians, nursing professionals and certified health educators will be available again this year.
