“On June 29th, the Vice President is convening a National Cancer Moonshot Summit. These Summits will be the first time that individuals and organizations representing the entire cancer community (researchers, doctors, scientists, philanthropists, community oncologists, advocates, patients and survivors) will all convene under the national charge to double the rate of progress toward a cure. Join your fellow cancer patients, advocates, researchers, community leaders, and healthcare professionals as we share updates and discuss efforts to accelerate progress in cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and care.”

HeritX, in collaboration with the Roy and Patricia Disney Family Cancer Center, will host a Cancer Moonshot Summit as part of Vice President Biden’s National Cancer Moonshot Summit on June 29, 2016.

Are you interested in giving input into prioritizing prevention research for inherited cancers?  Are you interested in giving voice to the needs of the BRCA community?  The purpose of the National Cancer Moonshot Summit is to come up with new ideas for collaborations and actions to advance the Cancer Moonshot.  One of the goals of the Cancer Moonshot is to double the rate of progress for preventing and curing cancer. Inherited BRCA cancers offer an incredible opportunity to achieve accelerated progress.  Please join us for a collaborative discussion about how to accelerate progress through preventing inherited BRCA cancers and all inherited cancers. The action items from our discussions will be incorporated into the National Cancer Moonshot. This discussion is a key opportunity to bring prevention and other needs of the hereditary cancer community onto the radar screen of national research policy and the National Cancer Moonshot.

Vice President Biden will be addressing our Summit and all summits being held throughout the United States to talk about the path of this transformative initiative.
