Day 1 Sessions

Keynote

Leading Through Uncertainty

Presented by Dr. Lisa Richardson, MD, MPH

Director, Division of Cancer Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Comprehensive cancer control programs and their partners play an essential role in reducing cancer risks and burdens in communities nationwide. These collaborations are even more critical as our nation continues to address the prolonged social, economic, and clinical care crises that remain in the wake of the CoVID-19 pandemic. The cancer control community adapted quickly as the crisis unfolded and worked in partnership with public health to reduce the threat of the virus for people with cancer while continuing to provide the best possible support and care to those who needed it most. In a post-COVID-19 world, these same partnerships will be key in sustaining the gains in cancer prevention and control.

Wisconsin Cancer Plan Overview

Setting the Stage: A Blueprint for Reducing the Cancer Burden in Wisconsin

Presented by Sarah Kerch, MPH

Director, Wisconsin Cancer Collaborative

How can Wisconsin reduce the burden of cancer for everyone? Let's get a brief overview of the new Wisconsin Cancer Plan 2020-2030 to frame our state’s approach to cancer control. We can use the Wisconsin Cancer Plan as a guide throughout the Summit, as we explore lessons learned and best practices from around the state.

Panel Discussion

Success Stories We Can Learn From

Experts from across Wisconsin share successful initiatives spanning the cancer control continuum. Learn from their success stories and gain tangible ideas and inspiration that can be applied to your own work.

Day 2 Sessions

Keynote

Race, Racism, & Health Equity: How Do the Dots Connect to Impact Cancer Control?

Presented by Ginny Finn, JD

President and CEO, YWCA Southeast Wisconsin

The first chapter of the new Wisconsin Cancer Plan 2020-2030 is “Health Equity” because this forms the foundation for all other chapters. How we understand race and racism, and how the trauma of racism has burdened us all, requires a better understanding of our past, as well as a common language for solving challenging problems in cancer control.

Keynote

Policy and Systems Change: A Call to Action to Advance Health Equity

Presented by Dr. Staci Young, PhD

Associate Professor and Director, Center for Healthy Communities and Research, Medical College of Wisconsin

It is critical to address structural issues to close the gap in health disparities. This includes systemic racism, stressors, and other root causes. This presentation will cover how these should be incorporated into action towards health equity.
