Save the Date! International Cancer Screening Network Meeting in 2015
The scientific program for the next International Cancer Screening Network (ICSN) meeting is being developed. The meeting is being co-chaired by Drs. Carrie Klabunde (ARP Health Services and Economics Branch) and Harry de Koning (Erasmus Medical Center), and will be held on June 2-4, 2015, in the Netherlands. Staff involved in the planning effort include Dr. Klabunde and Dr. Paul Doria-Rose (ARP Health Services and Economics Branch), Dr. Stephen Taplin (Chief, Process of Care Research Branch, Behavioral Research Program), Ms. Cheryl Deaguiar, and Ms. Samantha Williams (both in ARP's Office of the Associate Director). The meeting will bring together experts in cancer screening delivery and evaluation from around the world to discuss timely issues and topics in breast, cervical, colorectal, prostate, and lung cancer screening. A meeting Web site will be available soon with information about the Call for Abstracts, scholarships for early-stage investigators to support travel to the meeting, and other details. The meeting website will be linked from the ICSN Web page.
