2020 Virtual RI Cancer Summit

The Partnership to Reduce Cancer in Rhode Island invites you to view our 2020 Cancer Summit. Our first ever virtual event featured presentations on secondary cancers and oral health, the role of psychosocial oncology in the diagnosis and treatment process, a hands-on exercise to highlight the relationship between survivors, caregivers, and providers and a keynote address by Dr. Robert Legare. 

Keynote Speaker: Robert Legare, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine (Medical Oncology) at Yale Cancer Center and Medical Director for the Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center at Westerly and Waterford speaks about cancer breakthroughs in the past 20 years that have had a positive impact on survivorship. He also discusses the future of cancer research and treatment and its impact on survivorship in the next decade.

Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor for this year's Summit: Smilow Cancer Hospital Care Center
