Canines-N-Kids "Paws for a Cure" Summit
The Canines-N-Kids Foundation's First Annual Conference: "Paws for a Cure" Summit was held in Washington, DC from June 11-12, 2017. This Call to Action meeting, the first of its kind, brought together veterinary and pediatric oncologists, translational researchers, industry, policymakers, patient advocacy groups and the media to review opportunities, challenges, new scientific advances and medical applications across the spectrum of cancers common to canines and children - leveraging comparative oncology. A "Blue Ribbon Panel" of experts will now review recommendations made at the Summit and determine priorities and direction for funding, research and action to advance better medicines and a cure for both of these vulnerable patient groups.
We expect to future meetings at regular intervals to review the status quo and establish a barometer of progress toward our goal to end canine and childhood cancer, and a call to action for the year ahead. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
