Karen Peterson, Prevent Cancer Foundation VP of Programs, and Gary Gurian, C-Change Program Director, at the 2009 Dialogue for Action

The Prevent Cancer Foundation will host the 13th annual Dialogue for Action™ on Colorectal Cancer Screening March 23-25, 2011, in Baltimore, Maryland: Prevention Now for a Healthier Tomorrow. This dynamic conference will bring together a multidisciplinary group of 200 health care professionals and advocates to discuss the many issues related to increasing colorectal cancer screening.

The 2010 Dialogue held in March in Baltimore was enthusiastically described by two attendees with these words:

I felt that this was one of the strongest conferences that the Dialogue has put together (and I’ve been participating in them since the very first one over ten years ago!). I especially appreciate that the ‘dialogue’ has become more open to other types of CRC screening besides colonoscopy, and that there continues to be an emphasis on the important role of primary care.

Thumbs up! Dialogue is a 21st century idea!

The 2011 conference, A Dialogue for Action™ on Colorectal Cancer Screening: Prevention Now for a Healthier Tomorrow, will build on this success by pushing the envelope again with cutting-edge presentations from leaders in the field and opportunities for dynamic conversation focusing on what we can do now to ensure prevention’s place in the US health care system in 2014 and beyond. Topics will include primary care, medical homes, the business of prevention, updates on CRC screening programs funded by CDC, and much more!

Like other Dialogues before it, this Dialogue will be informative, provocative and engaging. And the professional networking can’t be beat.
