About the Women's Health and Cancer Conference

19th Annual Women's Health and Cancer ConferenceThe University of Vermont (UVM) Cancer Center’s annual Women’s Health and Cancer Conference is now in its 19th year. The conference has grown immensely throughout the years, beginning as the Breast Cancer Conference and now expanding to include topics relevant to all women about a range of cancer and wellness topics, including breast cancer.

Our theme this year is “Your Health: Putting Knowledge into Action.” Our goal is to empower participants to take control of their health and health care decisions. This means having access to good information about cancer prevention and detection, knowing the options available during treatment, and getting support to enhance survivorship. By offering an array of knowledge delivered by experts from the UVM Cancer Center and our partners, we hope to provide you with that knowledge.

 

You don’t need to have experienced cancer to feel welcome at this event. You may be interested in prevention or making sure that you know your screening options. You may want to attend in support of a loved one or, if you are a caregiver, you may be seeking support for yourself. Regardless of your age, gender, or cancer experience, there are topics here that will provide you with knowledge, support, and strength.

 

Primary care continues to be a focus at this conference. There is opportunity for physicians, nurses, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, social workers and other providers to strengthen their base of knowledge and broaden their horizons. As always, this event offers a wide range of educational credit for health care professionals as well. Health care professionals, along with patients and survivors, have a chance to put knowledge into action.
