Dana-Farber Cancer Institute hosts landmark Cancer and Environment Forum

February 3, 2022

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is hosting a three-part series called "Cancer Environment Forum 2022: What Does New Science Say About Chemicals & Cancer, Lessons From Public Health & Environmental Medicine."

Participants will learn about the latest science on the influence of environmental chemicals on cancer. The sessions are aimed at clinicians and also will be informative for policymakers, cancer researchers, and members of the public. Clinicians will be better able to answer patient questions, and gain skills in engaging in population-level policy change and community-based public health initiatives.

The groundbreaking forum, the first of its kind, is organized by Dana-Farber along with Silent Spring Institute, Lowell Center for Sustainable Production, Cancer Free Economy Network, Zhu Family Center for Global Cancer Prevention at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Mass General Brigham, and the Center for Cancer Equity and Engagement at Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center.

The virtual event will feature presentations by Silent Spring's Executive Director and Senior Scientist, Dr. Julia Brody, and Director of Research, Ruthann Rudel.
