UNC Lineberger Cancer Survivorship Research Retreat

May 3, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


UNC Lineberger
Cancer Survivorship
Research Retreat


The UNC Cancer Survivorship Research Retreat will bring together researchers and clinicians from across the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, UNC, and beyond to foster collaboration to expand cancer survivorship research. We hope that this will be the first of many opportunities to share our diverse expertise with the goal of using research to enhance the survivorship experience for all people impacted by cancer.

This half day virtual retreat will focus on health equity in cancer survivorship and long-term health effects of cancer and its treatment and feature speakers with ongoing NIH-funded research in these subject areas.

We have left ample time for networking with the hope that the connections that will be made will be the most meaningful part of the day. This retreat is free but please register to attend.
