World Cancer Day
Annals of Oncology and the European Society for Medical Oncology Mark World Cancer Day, February 4th 2016
Taking place under the tagline ‘We Can. I Can’, World Cancer Day 2016 takes a positive and proactive approach to the fight against cancer, exploring how everyone - as a collective or as individuals - can do their part to reduce the global burden of cancer.
The campaign will focus on what 'We' can do as clinicians, researchers and support services, as well as what individuals can do to help prevent cancer, or ask for support.
