Impacts of the AYA Cancer Movement on Clinical Practice and Clinical Research

Live Interactive Webinar
April 9, 2021
8:00 AM – 4:50 PM

About this Conference
Over the last two decades the “AYA Cancer Movement” has re-shaped both Pediatric and Medical
Oncology by expanding the reach of both disciplines to an under-served population of cancer patients
and cancer survivors: Adolescents & Young Adults (patients spanning the ages of 15 to 39).
This conference will examine the current successes, persistent and new challenges, and the outlook for
Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) oncology. The distinguished faculty speakers will address critical
topics in AYA oncology from the perspective of their own clinical and research areas of expertise.

Community Grants Program

The purpose of Boston North Cancer Association, Inc.’s (BNCA’s) Community Grants Program is to help reduce the risk of cancer for all ages and to enhance the health and well-being of cancer patients, cancer survivors, and family members of those with cancer.

Priority is given to programs and services that:

  • Offer free or low-cost services.

  • Promote community participation and engagement.
  • Provide measurable outcomes.
