The University of Vermont (UVM) Cancer Center's annual Women's Health and Cancer Conference, now in its 24th year, is a free, educational event aimed at empowering and supporting individuals and communities with knowledge about cancer prevention, detection, treatment and survivorship. 

Participants can expect to:

  • Access the latest, evidence-based information about cancer prevention and detection;
  • Learn about treatment options across a range of cancers; 
  • Gain information about support and wellness options to enhance survivorship; and
  • Feel inspired and supported!

This event is for anyone interested in learning more about women's health and cancer - patients, survivors, health care professionals, caregivers and the general public. Regardless of your age, gender, or cancer experience, this event will provide a supportive learning experience.

Professional development for health care continues to be a priority for this event. There are opportunities for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, social workers and others to strengthen their base of knowledge and earn credits.

"I just wanted to take a second and thank you for your (for lack of a better term) awesome presentation. I think I speak for everyone in your lecture when I say that it was incredibly informative, interesting and easy to digest both as a practitioner and a patient.
Excellent job! You are a great teacher."

-- a healthcare provider and 2020 conference attendee

"I really appreciate the variety of content and excellent speakers. The virtual platform worked seamlessly for me - I hope you consider using this in the future even after the in-person conference resumes."
-- a 2020 conference attendee
