      Indiana Cancer Consortium 2019 Annual Meeting

      2019 Annual Meeting, The Future of Cancer Prevention and Control The ICC is excited to announce the 2019 Indiana Cancer Consortium (ICC) Annual Meeting - The Future of Cancer Prevention and Control. The Annual Meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at the Ivy Tech Corporate College and Culinary Center located in Downtown Indianapolis.  The ICC Annual Meeting is a unique event that brings together the diverse, broad spectrum of organizations and professionals needed to cause action and create meaningful change in cancer prevention and control. Attendees at this meeting have an extraordinary opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with a wide variety of experts from the Indiana cancer community. The objective of this year's annual meeting is to explore the future of cancer prevention and control throughout the state, specifically as it relates to healthcare disparities, HPV-related cancers, colorectal cancer, and tobacco cessation. Our goal is to stimulate discussion, collaboration, and strategic planning among statewide partners. Stakeholders will convene to address innovative practices as they relate to the full continuum of cancer prevention and care. We are honored to welcome Suleika Jaouad, an Emmy Award-winning writer, speaker and cancer survivor. She wrote the acclaimed New York Times column Life, Interrupted and is the subject of the accompanying video series, which chronicled her journey with leukemia throughout her early twenties. She has written reported features for New York Times Magazine, NPR, Vogue and Glamour, among numerous other publications. Her highly anticipated debut memoir, Between Two Kingdoms, is forthcoming from Random House. Listed among Mogul’s “35 Under 35” most influential and inspiring young women worldwide, Suleika travels the globe sharing her story of making the most of a life, interrupted and empowering others to find purpose in pain and transform challenges into creativity. We are also thrilled to welcome Edith Mitchell, MD, FACP. Dr. Mitchell, board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology, has spent her medical career helping individuals in medically underserved areas to realize that simple changes in lifestyle can have a dramatic impact on cancer care. Through her work, Dr. Mitchell has demonstrated the importance of community service and outreach, especially to those individuals who may not have the means to seek out more conventional medical advice.Attending the ICC Annual Meeting and participating in ICC coalition activities is a significant step in reducing our cancer burden. Join us as we look forward to a day full of cross-collaboration and networking with our state’s knowledgeable and passionate cancer advocates! Registration for this event is free and lunch will be provided.
