The 2017 APRU Global Health Program Conference, to be hosted by University of the Philippines, will take place on October 16-19, 2017, in Manila.
This year’s conference theme is “Environmental Exposures & Cancer in the Pacific Rim”, as a large proportion of the Pacific Rim’s cancer burden is related to environmental exposures, including indoor and outdoor air pollution, and occupational exposures.
Dr. Curtis Harris, from the U.S. National Cancer Institute, will present a keynote on research on biomarkers of cancer. Two optional workshops- one on Substance Abuse in the Philippines and another on Migration in the Pacific Rim- will also be held on October 16th.
The conference will provide leading experts, practitioners, policy makers and early career researchers a critical platform to share latest research and knowledge in relation to prevention of cancer and other non-communicable diseases, environmental health and occupational health. The workshop will conclude with a field trip featuring the UP campus and highlights of Manila.
