National Conference on Work & Cancer
Cancer and Careers' 13th annual National Conference on Work & Cancer will be held on Friday, June 23, 2023! This free, daylong event brings together patients, survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, advocates, employers/HR, advocates and others touched by cancer to explore the complexities of balancing treatment and recovery with employment.
We know that not everyone has access to reliable technology in their home, which is why for this event we offered our Technology Assistance Program (TAP). This application-based program for cancer patients and survivors awards (1) laptop (such as a Chromebook or similar device) to a limited number of recipients. Although applications are now closed, if you'd like to learn more about the program and place yourself on a list for future opportunities please click here.
