Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos
Event Date & TimeFebruary 26, 2020-February 28, 2020
LocationMarriott Plaza San Antonio
The Mays Cancer Center and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio are hosting the 2nd international conference on Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos on February 26-28, 2020, in San Antonio, Texas.
This conference comes at an especially important time for Latinos.
This population is the largest, youngest and fastest-growing minority group in the U.S. They are expected to face a 142% rise in cancer cases in coming years.
Disparities continue to plague this population in access to care, risk factor behaviors, mortality, and quality of life.
Our vision has been to unite researchers, scientists, physicians, healthcare professionals, patient advocates and students from across the nation and beyond, in an open dialogue, under one roof, to discuss research advancements to date, identify gaps, and develop actionable goals to translate basic research into clinical best practices, effective community interventions, and professional training programs to eliminate cancer disparities in Latinos.
We hope you will join us in February 2020.
You will gain a comprehensive perspective on Latino cancer health disparities, learn how you can apply some of this research and practice into your own work, and help us foster more collaboration, more research and more success in improving the health and lives of Latinos!Register now
