The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) Minnesota Research and Innovation Breakfast is a premiere event that brings together leaders from the business, education, medical, government and research communities to advance the work of ACS CAN. The event not only unites those in Minnesota who are fighting to end cancer, it serves to support ACS CAN, the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society and its work to ensure that elected officials across the country make cancer a top national priority. 

The 2019 event, in partnership with the Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, part of Allina Health, will explore the topic of tobacco prevention, cessation, and lung cancer screenings. Tobacco use continues to be the number one cause of lung cancer and preventable death.  This event will delve into the institutional and community-based programs working to prevent commercial tobacco use and help Minnesotans quit tobacco and explore the research and development of lung screenings. Though cigarette smoking has declined significantly, disparities in tobacco use remain across groups defined by race, ethnicity, educational level, and socioeconomic status. 

Join ACS CAN Minnesota, Virginia Piper Cancer Institute, and event speakers for this important discussion. Reducing tobacco use and preventing lung cancer across all communities will require collaborative solutions from researchers, business leaders, providers, and policymakers. There is no cost to attend this event.
