2021 ACS CAN Wisconsin Research & Innovation Forum

November 4, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for our annual

ACS CAN Wisconsin Research and Innovation Forum

Cancer remains a critical public health problem and how new cures are discovered and delivered will continue to change. ACS CAN recognizes that cancer research is the engine behind our ongoing progress in the fight against cancer. Research offers hope to the millions of people who face cancer – for better treatments, for more opportunities to prevent and detect the disease early on, and for improved quality of life for those already diagnosed. Join us to learn more about the critical importance of cancer research and the exciting discovery taking place right here in Wisconsin.

The delivery of new and affordable cancer therapies from the research lab to the patient will require collaborative solutions from researchers, business leaders, providers, and policymakers. Join us as we delve into the critical role of cancer research in helping ACS CAN Wisconsin carry out its mission of reducing death and suffering from cancer.
