On December 7 and 8, 2022 the Richard Nixon Foundation will convene top clinicians, researchers, journalists, NCI designated cancer center directors, patients, patient advocates, ethicists, medical professionals and public health officials for the second annual Nixon National Cancer Conference at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, California.
This year’s conference will approach cancer from a patient-centric and problem-centric point of view. After all, patients are the ground zero of cancer. Who they are, what they experience, and how they are treated —and whether they are treated— will be the primary focus alongside an examination of the major breakthroughs that cancer research has enabled in other areas of medicine.
Please note the schedule is subject to change.
