Katie Miller Young Adult Cancer Conference
The purpose of this program is to learn the importance of early detection of cancer in young adults, along with its treatments. Too often, symptoms or warning signs are ignored or dismissed due to the age of the patient. It is seen as something that occurs more predominately in the older population. With more research, discussion and public awareness, maybe then key symptoms that might have otherwise been dismissed be detected early on.
- Recognize the importance of early recognition of cancer in young adults.
- Discuss the newest treatment modalities for colorectal cancer.
