Putting Cancer in Its Place

January 17, 2022

Event Navigation

DATE: Jan 17, 2022 – 12:00pm to 1:00pm

LOCATION: 700-828 W. 10 Ave. VGH Research Pavilion

PRESENTER: Trevor Dummer

Cancer prevention is central to a successful cancer control strategy. Improved knowledge about cancer risks, and effective translation of this knowledge into action, are essential for developing prevention activities. Place—where we live, work and play—significantly influences the accumulation of cancer risks that are modifiable through policy, regulatory, and behaviour changes. In this presentation I will provide an overview of my cancer prevention research program, highlighting specific studies evaluating the interaction between people, places, and cancer. Attendees of this talk will gain an understanding of how the environment influences cancer risk, and how insight into the relationship between health and place can advance cancer prevention.
