The Cancer Moonshot is the coming together of science, technology, advocacy, social science and big data to solve cancer’s greatest challenges. “I plan to do two things, 1) increase resources--both private and public--to fight cancer. 2) break down silos and bring all the cancer fighters together--to work together, share information, and end cancer as we know it. And the goal of this initiative is simple. To double the progress, to make a decade’s worth of advances in 5 years” Vice President Joe Biden, Feb 2016.
This conference will provide an overview of the Cancer Moonshot as of August, 2017. There will also be presentations on the impact of the Moonshot on cancer care, with specific references to the oncology professionals in Hawaii. How will we make sure that we reach the moon?
