COURSE OBJECTIVES

This event will bring together early age onset (EAO) colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors, loved ones, health care professionals and researchers from across the country. The program will provide extensive opportunities for participants to advance their understanding of the rapidly increasing incidence of rectal and colon cancer among young adults under 50 years of age in the U.S. and abroad. 

This ground breaking program will, for a second year, provide both survivors and health care professional’s opportunities to leverage each other’s insights and provide an opportunity for all to hear leading clinicians and scientists on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, genomics and quality of life preserving treatment options for EAO-CRC.

The course will include lectures, workshops and panel discussions designed to facilitate multidisciplinary consensus regarding the priorities of EAO-CRC prevention, clinical care, quality of life and research moving forward.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES:

  • Review the increasing incidence, epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of young adults with colorectal cancer;
  • Discuss the current state of knowledge on the causes of young adult colorectal cancer and identify specific gaps in that knowledge; and
  • Provide an evidence based framework for reducing risk, increasing early stage diagnosis and improving treatment and quality of life for these patients.
