Spring 2021 NAACCR Narrative Leave a comment

Plans are taking shape for the NAACCR Summer Forum June 15-17, 2021. We will not be seeing you in Palm Springs as planned due to continuing COVID-19 concerns. However, our fully remote experience will offer our traditional high level educational content and member sponsored research in a new venue with plenty of opportunity to network with our colleagues and collaborators. We can’t wait until the NAACCR community can all be together in-person but until then, we are working harder than ever to bring you an awesome scientific FORUM. We plan on bringing everyone together in an on-line platform to make 2021 a brand new year to learn, share best practices, and collaborate in a one-of-a-kind event!


Plenary sessions will include:

  • 50th Anniversary of the National Cancer Act and its Impact on Cancer Surveillance
  • How data collection systems have changed since 1971 and visions of a cancer surveillance system in 2021 using tools available today
  • Innovative Research Using the Central Cancer Registry as a VTR
  • The Effect of Advances in Lung Cancer Treatment on Population Mortality and how registry data could be used to inform future studies of this nature
  • The Impact of COVID-19 on Cancer Surveillance in Canada and the United States
  • Health Disparities in Canada and the United States
  • The Cancer Path Chart Initiative
  • Enhancements and Advances of Match*Pro.
  • Updates on the Virtual Pooled Registry and National Childhood Cancer Registry Initiatives.

We hope you will join us for the NAACCR FORUM and take time to learn, renew, re-focus, and set our sight on an optimistic future for us all in 2021 and beyond!
