Be the Boss Over Cancer

National Conference logo

Our annual National Conference on Work & Cancer explores the challenges working people face — including job search, health insurance, legal issues, working through treatment and job re-entry — as they try to balance their cancer treatment and recovery with employment.

The 2014 Conference was held on Friday, June 13, in New York City. Details regarding next year's conference will be available later this year.
