The Beyond Pink TEAM's Ignite the Cancer Conversation is offering a sixth annual virtual event that will educate patients, survivors, caregivers, health care professionals and others in ways to rethink cancer by sharing the latest research on cancer metastasis. This FREE virtual, evening workshop will be led by medical, academic, and policy experts. CEU credits will be offered for a small fee.
Participants will learn about the process of metastasis, or the spread of cancer cells to distant sites, and the conditions that can put cancer cells to sleep – or wake them up. Preventing metastasis will involve interdisciplinary collaboration to represent varied perspectives and strategies from academia, industry, and public health. By engaging diverse stakeholders in conversations regarding metastasis, we hope to move closer toward solving this puzzle.

Our broadest vision is a world without cancer. Our near vision seeks to have many conversations that can catalyze purposeful actions that will build that future world.
