9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, June 29
Mabee Conference Room, Cancer Therapy & Research Center
During his State of the Union address on January 12, 2016, President Barack Obama announced the establishment of a new National Cancer Moonshot Initiative to accelerate cancer research. The initiative—led by Vice President Joe Biden—aims to make more therapies available to more patients, while also improving our ability to prevent cancer and detect it at an early stage.
The CTRC summit is one of more than 30 such events being held across the country. The summits will bring together individuals and organizations representing the entire cancer community, from researchers to oncologists, care providers to patients, survivors to philanthropists.
The CTRC event is free, including parking, and open to the public. Highlights will include updates on the Moonshot Initiative, a livestream of Vice President Biden’s remarks from Washington, D.C., and breakout sessions.
Individuals and organizations are urged to register by Tuesday, June 21, at the CTRC Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1129085653801978/. Alternatively, the public may RSVP at (210) 450-1018 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
