Irish Cancer Society Event Millennium Hall Feb 6th

The Irish Cancer Society, supported by Cork City Council, will hold an event in Millennium Hall on Monday 6 February from 10am to 1pm, which will showcase the range of services we offer in Cork city and county. Cork is a vital hub for the Irish Cancer Society’s work and it is important that we make all of our supporters, volunteers and wider stakeholders aware of all of the progress we have made in the region.
By 2020, one in two of us will be getting cancer in our lifetime. Here at the Irish Cancer Society, we want to understand it, fight it, and stop it in its tracks. The only way we can do can do this is together.
Professor Kerri Clough-Gorr will be the keynote speaker for the event. Prof. Clough-Gorr is the director of the National Cancer Registry of Ireland (NCRI) and Professor of Cancer Epidemiology at University College Cork (UCC).
As part of the event, we are also very excited to be launching our Cork Cancer Action Network’s new action plan. Cork Cancer Action is a collaborative network who has come together under the framework of the Cork Healthy Cities to work on cancer prevention and health inequalities. The action plan will set out the ways in which we can develop a community-focused approach to cancer prevention and early detection.
The event offers a really great opportunity to have a discussion about cancer services and support in Cork. On the day, we will have information stands on all aspects of our work and there will be plenty of opportunities to network and engage with the different areas.
The Irish Cancer Society has a very proud history in Cork and people all across the county have always been very supportive of the Society’s work.
Please RSVP to Emma Mulhall at emulhall@irishcancer.ie by 5pm on Friday 27 January 2017.
