Mark your calendars for this can’t-miss event on April 22 – 24, 2015.

Preparation for the 2015 Dialogue is underway. We’re working to bring you the best information about technology, policy, expanding access to cancer screening and health care and more. We’re organizing sessions, lining up speakers and planning new networking opportunities.

The Dialogue is an essential conference for those passionate about cancer screening. You can exchange ideas with primary care physicians, medical specialists, individuals working in medical technology, nurses, advocates, survivors, patient navigators, health services researchers and public health professionals, all in one place.

  • About one-half intend to implement change in their workplaces or communities as a result of attending the Dialogue.
  • About two-thirds plan to contact colleagues they met at the Dialogue to discuss or collaborate on cancer screening activities.
  • “The excellent agenda covered a wide range of cancer topics that were very applicable to my work.”

Over 90% who answered the survey indicated they would attend another Dialogue.
