2017 Dialogue: Top-ranked poster

Top-ranked poster in 2017: “Links to Care: Building Colorectal Cancer Specialty Care Access for Community Health Center Patients”

Are you working on cancer screening or prevention in your community by:

  • Reducing barriers to or increasing quality of breast, cervical, colorectal or lung cancer screening or prevention initiatives?
  • 80% x 2018: Successes and Lessons Learned
  • Bundling preventive screening tests (e.g., breast, cervical or colorectal)?
  • Educating patients about cancer screening or prevention via mobile technologies or social media?

Then you should submit a poster abstract!

The Dialogue poster session is a great opportunity to share information and highlight successes in cancer prevention or early detection in communities across the country. The 2018 poster session theme is “Community-based Programs or Practices in Cancer Screening or Prevention.” The top-ranked abstract will receive one waived registration fee, special recognition at the poster session and will be featured in an exclusive video interview to be recorded on site at the Dialogue.
