101 College Street
While cancer can be a difficult topic to address, particularly in some cultures and settings, dealing with the disease openly can improve outcomes at an individual, community and policy level.
Taking place at MaRS Discovery District, hear storytellers, cancer experts, a leading social marketer, university student leaders, a filmmaker and other inspiring community leaders share ideas about taking control of cancer. We’ll be inviting members of the audience to join in the dialogue and help shape the new cancer control movement in Canada.
A mix of everyday Canadians—communications experts, students, cancer professionals and grassroots community organizers will talk about how we can address the myths, confusion and misunderstanding about cancer—and get input and ideas from the audience. There will be time to visit and talk with people involved in cancer control and see the exhibits from our World Cancer Day partners, students, government agencies, charities, corporate supporters and others engaged in cancer control and care.
Myth 1 – We don’t need to talk about cancer
Myth 2 – There are no signs or symptoms of cancer
Myth 3 – There’s nothing I can do about cancer
Myth 4 – I don’t have the right to cancer care
