This course is co-sponsored by the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and Michael's Mission. It is a novel meeting designed for Early Age Onset (EAO) colorectal cancer (CRC) survivors, affected families as well as physicians and scientists who are interested in advancing their understanding of the rapidly increasing incidence of rectal and colon cancer among young adults under 50 years of age. This year's program will provide attendees with an opportunity to hear leading clinicians and scientists on the epidemiology, pathogenesis, genomics and lifestyle challenges of EAO-CRC.

The course will also include lectures as well as workshops and panel discussions designed to facilitate multidisciplinary consensus regarding the priorities of EAO-CRC prevention, clinical care and research moving forward.

 

SUMMIT OBJECTIVES:

Review the epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment of young adult colorectal cancer.

Discuss the current state of knowledge on the causes of young adult colorectal cancer and identify specific gaps in that knowledge.

Provide an evidence based framework for reducing risk, increasing early stage diagnosis and improving treatment and quality of life for these patients.
