The speaking tour is inspired by the United Nation’s first Global Summit on Non-communicable Diseases being held September 19-20, 2011 in New York City. To achieve pan-Canadian social change, People vs. Cancer is calling on all Canadians to play a transformational role in the fight against cancer. The speaking tour’s aim is to create dialogue between young people, business leaders, academics, NGOs, government, as well as healthcare practitioners, institutions and companies.
The panel discussion will focus on the fight against cancer, the changes needed to the current healthcare business model to become more sustainable and accountable, and how Canada’s post-secondary institutions can help prepare the next generation of global leaders to solve complex health issues.
Tabletop exhibits on display in the foyer will include:
Coast to Coast Against Cancer
McMaster Student Cancer Society
Ovarian Cancer Canada
Prostate Cancer Canada
Rethink Breast Cancer
