Cancer: It's About Prevention.
It's About Time!

April 20, 2007


Please join us at the landmark national conference, CANCER: It's About Prevention. It's About Time!
at the University of Ottawa, May 24-27, 2007.

Over half of all cancers are preventable. Prevent Cancer Now and the Saunders-Matthey Cancer Prevention Coalition are co-sponsoring this national conference in Ottawa to develop practical plans for action to stop the cancer epidemic in Canada.

This conference has three main goals:
* To foster a Canada-wide movement for cancer prevention, emphasizing strategies to eliminate 'environmental' causes of cancer, including hazards in our homes, schools, workplaces, personal products - and diet.

* To raise national awareness about the need for the primary prevention of cancer - stopping cancer before it starts.

* To provide tools and strategies to assist local groups with public education & action campaigns.

The conference will also include outstanding keynote speakers, regional organizing, 18 participatory workshops, plus the launch of "Cancer: 101 Solutions to a Preventable Epidemic" (New Society Publishers). .

Full conference registration is $250 ($300 after April 22) with day rates available; accommodation at University of Ottawa is $33 to $55 per person per night (available to those who register before April 22).
