Texas' Leadership in Cancer Innovations
The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) will host its sixth annual Texas Cancer Policy Forum series this fall, uniting key leaders and decision makers in business, health care, and government to consider the potential loss of state funding for cancer prevention and early detection services across the state.
Texas institutions are generating exciting new life-saving therapies and making advances in the fight against cancer, with significant investments from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) fueling the effort. This ongoing work is also providing a healthy boost to the state's economy.
Join us at our forum events in Austin, Dallas or San Antonio to learn more about these programs and what can be done to save the lives of more Texans. A light breakfast will be served.
Confirmed Speakers Include:
Dr. Carlos Arteaga, Director, Harold C Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center
Dr. David Gerber, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Co-Director of the Experimental Therapeutics Program
Following the program there will be an optional tour of the Texas Proton Therapy Center. RSVP for more details.
