Action Day 2012

Cancer Research and its Progress

Awareness Day Thursday October 11th 2012

 

Every year in October, the Cancer Support Group (CSG) of the Commission organises an Awareness Day centred on a particular health theme.

“Cancer Research and its Progress” is the title of this year’s event which will take place during lunchtime on Thursday 11th October in the Commission’s Berlaymont building.

A series of stands in the Berlaymont Piazza (ground floor) will be attended by representatives from various Belgian based cancer support organisations, who have been invited to provide information and present their work. In addition we have invited a number of representatives of European and international associations who have involvement in cancer research, some with funding from RTD’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), and/or patient quality life.

These include the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC), the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO), the European Network for Cancer Research in Children and Adolescents (ENCCA) the National Cancer Insitute (NCI) and the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS).

Vice President Šefčovič is supporting this event and has kindly agreed to come along and meet the standholders.

We are again taking this opportunity to introduce our visitors to a number of well-being, relaxation practices such as Shiatsu massage, Micro-kiné and Reiki.

Round Table Discussion Thursday October 25th 2012

To enable colleagues to pose direct questions to experts in the field of Cancer Research, the Cancer Support Group is holding a second event during lunch-time on Thursday 25th October in the Commission’s Guimard building. This will take the form of a round table discussion with several panelists from the medical and research worlds who will briefly present their specialist fields and then take questions from the floor. If you wish to know more about the current state of play on cancer research and its progress then sign up via SYSLOG http://www.cc.cec/di/syslog_formation/application/catalogue.cfm?cor_id=402766

Colleagues from other institutions are more than welcome by contacting the Cancer Support Group directly.
