Following on from the success of previous Global AYA Cancer Congresses in Edinburgh and Atlanta, this year's event is again expected to welcome close to 400 Australian and international delegates.
The 3rd Global AYA Cancer Congress will be a dynamic event where healthcare professionals, policy makers, researchers and consumers from across the globe will come together to showcase and discuss the latest developments in AYA cancer.
The theme of the 2018 Congress is Navigating the Road Through AYA Cancer, emphasising the importance of addressing all aspects of AYA cancer from prevention and diagnosis, through acute treatment to survivorship, palliative care and rehabilitation. Reflecting this, the daily themes will be Life Before Cancer, Life With Cancer, and Life Beyond Cancer.
This event will be hosted by CanTeen Australia on behalf of the Global Accord, which has been set up as a collaboration between 3 charitable organisations - Teenage Cancer Trust, Teen Cancer America, and CanTeen Australia - for the purpose of creating a truly global approach to this conference series. Every 18 months, the Congress will rotate geographically.
Working together - achieving more.
