Dialogue for Action™: Right-Sizing Cancer Screening
March 20 – 21, 2014
Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel

Come to Dialogue for Action™, an annual national conference in Baltimore’s historic inner harbor that brings together a diverse group of stakeholders committed to realizing the lifesaving potential of cancer screening for all communities. If you have yet to attend a Dialogue, then March 20 – 21, 2014, is your chance to:

  • Engage in timely discussions on cancer screening, implementation of the Affordable Care Act, disparities, modalities, controversies in the media, patient engagement and more.
  • Dialogue with prominent speakers.
  • Network with colleagues in the diverse cancer screening community and explore opportunities for collaboration.
  • Join in lively and instructive pre-conference activities on Wednesday, March 19.

Dialogue for Action covers the mandated guidelines-driven cancer screenings for colorectal, cervical and breast cancers screenings in addition to issues related to other cancer screenings (such as lung, prostate and skin).

This year’s Dialogue for Action will feature panels on:

  • Implementation of the Affordable Care Act: Rising to the Opportunity
  • Right-Sizing Cancer Screening
  • Reducing Disparities in Cancer Screening
  • Primary Care in Transition
  • Frontiers in Cancer Screening Modalities
  • Having the Conversation: Doctors and Patients on Cancer Screening and Prevention
  • Cancer Screening Controversies in the Media

Plus, Peter L. Levin, PhD, our keynote, will give a lively talk on how technology can improve healthcare for patients.
