International Symposium on Breast Cancer Prevention: Nutrition, Communication and Public Policy
October 18 - October 19 @ - Stewart Center, Rooms 302/306
The international breast cancer and nutrition (IBCN) group is organizing a multidisciplinary symposium on approaches to breast cancer prevention that focus on nutrition, communication and public policy. This initiative recognizes that different countries have unique perspectives which would benefit a sustained international effort to prevent breast cancer, and that the education of trainees in cross-disciplinary and international collaboration is an essential component in addressing global public health-related issues. The goal of this symposium is to bring together global public health actors and advocates, and researchers on breast cancer prevention and nutrition to provide a platform for discussion among scientists, clinicians and other professionals in the biology, epidemiology, medicine, nutrition, communication, education and public policy fields.
The symposium will include four plenary sessions with four to six oral presentations per session:
1) Breast cancer prevention and communication;
2) Breast cancer prevention and public policy;
3) Nutrition, populations & breast cancer;
4) Nutrition research and breast cancer.
Poster presentations and international panel discussions are also important components of this symposium. Check our program for detailed information.
