World Cancer Day, an initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), provides an opportunity to discuss how we can take control of cancer and help stop myths, confusion and fear about the disease.
Hosted by the Campaign to Control Cancer and MaRS Discovery District, this event will highlight four unique approaches to cancer control: campus-based prevention efforts by young Canadians; accelerating innovation; harnessing the potential of social entrepreneurs and cancer leaders to break down fear; and debunking myths about cancer.
