Cancer Connections Public Lectures
The Cancer Connection Lecture Series was established to increase awareness and education around cancer prevention. The lectures are public presentations followed by a question and answer period. The Cancer Foundation actively searches for experts who specialize in lifestyle and healthy living research as it pertains to cancer prevention. We aim to offer two lectures a year and welcome your feedback and suggestions for upcoming guests.
