Grounds for Health at the International Cancer Control Conference


From November 3-6, Grounds for Health Executive Director August Burns and Senior Program Officer Rebecca Singer will attend the International Cancer Control Conference 5 in Lima, Peru.

The theme of the congress is ‘International Collaboration’ and it will highlight the need for collaboration and cooperation in implementing cancer and non-communicable disease control strategies worldwide.

Grounds for Health will co-lead a workshop on how to communicate evidence regarding cancer prevention methods with health care providers and community health promoters. We will present with a leader in community health promotion from INEN (the Peruvian National Cancer Institute).

We will also be presenting at a workshop entitled, “Strengthening Organizational Capacity and Networking.” Our presentation will focus on how our work with coffee communities has led to changes in how community members access health care services.

This conference gives Grounds for Health a chance to share our lessons learned with our peers and provides us with a great opportunity to build new collaborative relationships.
