You are cordially invited to attend the

Duluth Cancer Moonshot Summit!

University of Minnesota Medical School, Duluth campus

1035 University Dr., Room 142

June 29, 2016

12pm-3pm

On June 29th, Vice President Joe Biden is convening a Cancer Moonshot Summit, including conversations in communities across the United States. These Summits will be the first time that individuals and organizations representing the entire cancer community and beyond- researchers, oncologists, care providers, philanthropists, data and tech experts, advocates, patients and survivors- will all convene under the national charge to double the rate of progress toward a cure.

Join us as we share updates and discuss efforts to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care.

Goal:

  • To open the dialogue among attendees to encourage collaborations for accelerating the pace of progress in cancer research, prevention, treatment, and care.

Objectives:

  • Spur discussions throughout the country about the Moonshot Initiative, current work around cancer, and the potential for new collaborations.
  • Increase understanding of and participation in the Moonshot Initiative.
  • Create a formal mechanism for individuals and organizations representing all types of cancers to have direct engagement with the Moonshot Initiative.
  • Generate ideas and commitments to accelerate cures and end cancer.

We hope to see you on June 29, 2016; this is free and open to the public! Questions can be directed to Heather Heart at hcheart@umn.edu or Dr. Lynne Bemis at ltbemis@d.umn.edu.
