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
