Challenge Cancer EU Parliamentary Intergroup
Date: Wednesday 1 July 2020
Time: 16.30 - 19.00
We have the great honour to invite you to the launch of the European Parliament Challenge Cancer Intergroup, chaired by MEP Cristian Bușoi, and co-chaired by MEPs Alessandra Moretti, Aldo Patriciello, Frederique Ries, with the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) providing the Secretariat.
This first and only EU Parliamentary Intergroup on cancer will serve as a forum for MEPs from all political parties to engage in dialogue with patients, cancer survivors and carers, scientific and medical societies, research institutions, think tanks, medical practitioners and researchers, policy makers and leaders of the health industry, civil society at large, national governments and institutions. It will act as a two-way communication channel by holding hearings and debates and leading fact-finding missions on salient topics such as prevention, access to treatment, medicine shortages, cancer research on quality of life, innovation in cancer care, and survivorship.
The virtual launch event will bring together MEPs and high-level speakers, including Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides and the Chair of the Cancer Mission Board, Prof. Walter Ricciardi, to discuss cancer challenges in times of pandemics like COVID-19 and the role of policy makers and stakeholders, including patient organisations such as ECPC.
We would be happy to welcome you on Wednesday, 1 July from 16:30 to 19:00.
