KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Looking for Avoidable Causes of Breast Cancer: No Trivial Pursuit!N / Tom Ahern, PhD, MPHVCC / Causal philosophy helps epidemiologists in their hunt for avoidable causes of breast cancer. In this talk, Dr. Ahern will introduce a theory of causation that boils down to a high-stakes game of Trivial Pursuit. He will explain how this theory focuses current research efforts to find highly prevalent, yet avoidable, causes which have the potential to substantially reduce breast cancer burden in the population.
