LIVE Broadcast – Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Summit

Dear NCCRT Members:

The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation has asked us to pass along the following meeting invitation to their “Live broadcast” Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Summit on Saturday, March 21st, 2015.

The topic is the rapidly increasing rate of rectal and colon cancer in young adults (under 50 years of age) in the U.S. The faculty will present a detailed overview of the state-of-the-problem, including Keynote Speaker Becky Siegel MPH, who will present her seminal work on the emerging young adult colorectal cancer problem. The topics for presentation are listed below. The Summit is designed to include and directly involve survivors and families as well as leading health care providers and research scientists. Key meeting objectives include defining the top clinical and research priorities moving forward.

We are extremely pleased to announce that the Summit will be broadcast by our partner Healtheo360 on their site H360 Live.
