2022 Virtual Annual Meeting

Bridging the Divide: Addressing Social and Structural Barriers

The ICC is excited to announce the 2022 Annual Meeting – Bridging the Divide: Addressing Social and Structural Barriers. 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 elevate the discussion around social and structural barriers in cancer care that exist in our state – through innovative policy, practice recommendations, and agents of meaningful, longstanding change to reduce disparities and dissolve barriers. 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.

2022 Annual Meeting Keynote Speaker

We are honored to welcome Dr. Jacquelynn Y. Orr, Program Officer on the Research, Learning, and Evaluation team of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation as our keynote speaker.
