National Conference on Work & Cancer
Our 11th annual National Conference on Work & Cancer was held virtually on Friday, June 25, 2021. This free, daylong event explored the complexities of balancing treatment and recovery with employment and was open to patients, survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, advocates, employers/HR and anyone else touched by cancer.
We know that not everyone has access to reliable technology in their home, which is why, this year, we launched our Technology Assistance Program (TAP). This application-based program for cancer patients and survivors offered a onetime award of (1) tablet or portable laptop (such as a Chromebook or similar device) to a limited number of recipients.

Complimentary CEUs / PDCs were available for nurses, social workers and HR professionals who attended the Conference. Click here for more information on accreditation.
