Cancer and the Environment | June 21, 2023

On June 21, 2023, researchers, patients, and community advocates came together for the COE's first annual Cancer and the Environment Symposium. In a series of talks, experts from the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine's Meyer Cancer Center discussed the state of the science of environmental carcinogenesis and the role physicians, nurses, community leaders, and public health practitioners play in engaging the public on environmental chemicals and cancer risk reduction.
