The ICC is excited to announce the 2023 Indiana Cancer Consortium (ICC) Annual Meeting – Catching Up to Cancer. The Annual Meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at the Ivy Tech Corporate College and Culinary Center located in Downtown Indianapolis.

The ICC Annual Meeting is a unique event that brings together the diverse, broad spectrum of organizations and professionals needed to cause action and create meaningful change in cancer prevention and control. Attendees at this meeting have an extraordinary opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with a wide variety of experts from the Indiana cancer community.

The objective of this year’s annual meeting is to look at the impact of the pandemic on cancer screenings and learn about innovative ways that we can address this issue in communities across Indiana. Our goal is to stimulate discussion, collaboration, and strategic planning among statewide partners. Stakeholders will convene to address innovative practices as they relate to the full continuum of cancer prevention and care.

Attending the ICC Annual Meeting and participating in ICC coalition activities is a significant step in reducing our cancer burden. Join us as we look forward to a day full of cross-collaboration and networking with our state’s knowledgeable and passionate cancer advocates!
