7th Biennial Cancer Survivorship Research Conference

www.cancer.org/survivorshipconference2014

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 to Friday, June 20, 2014

The Westin Peachtree Plaza Atlanta
210 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, GA  30303

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 7th Biennial Cancer Survivorship Research Conference, “Advancing Survivorship Care through Multilevel Collaborations," to be held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza in Atlanta, Georgia, from June 18-20, 2014.

As in the past, the 7th Biennial has two categories for abstract submission: Programmatic abstracts and Scientific abstracts. Distinct from Scientific abstracts, Programmatic abstracts will report data from innovative, evidence-based approaches for delivering services and care to cancer survivors. We will accept scientific abstracts that describe the results of methodologically rigorous survivorship research. See the Abstract Page for more information.

This meeting will serve as a forum for researchers, clinicians, cancer survivors, advocates, program planners, policy-makers, and public health experts to learn about current and emerging cancer survivorship research, and will highlight the important role of collaboration between and across individuals and agencies to improve cancer survivorship outcomes. On behalf of the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute’s Office of Cancer Survivorship, LIVESTRONG Foundation, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we hope to see you there!
