Cancer Program 2012

December 9-12, 2012 Washington, D.C.

NPF’s sixth, all-expenses-paid educational program on cancer issues. On-the-record experts helped 16 U.S. based journalists sort out new research, new purported risks, treatment options and the soaring price of care. Topics included advances in specific cancers, the emerging role of gene mutations, behavioral and social issues. Journalist discussions and critiques, with plenty of time for Q&A, enriched the four-day program.
