We are pleased to invite you to join us at the Seventh Annual EAO-CRC Summit™ which will take place on May 11th, 2021 at the Hyatt Regency in Jersey City. We have hosted the Summit in some pretty incredible locations but the view of the Manhattan skyline from this venue simply can’t be beat!
This year’s event will be hosted in conjunction with the 9th Biennial Meeting of the International Society for Gastrointestinal Hereditary Tumours (InSiGHT). We are so pleased to be working with Matthew F. Kalady, MD, FACS, FASCRS and his team and, I can’t think of a better theme than “Saving Lives through Applying Knowledge.”
Each year the EAO-CRC SUMMIT™ brings together stakeholders from around the world including clinicians representing leading academic medical centers, the Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Advocacy Community, and scientists and epidemiologists leading research at institutes, universities and companies worldwide.
Our objective is to understand and advance the “state-of-the-science” - the latest information regarding national and international EAO CRC incidence trends, pathogenesis, and genetics, present cutting-edge medical and research advancements and breakthroughs and build community, conversation and action focused on addressing early age onset colorectal cancer. In short we are focused on “Saving Lives through Applying Knowledge.”
This year’s program will present an e-poster session and a “Research in Progress” segment providing an update on currently NCI funded and planned EAO CRC research projects from across America and Europe.
Breakout Sessions based on needs-assessments from our survivor community will address challenging issues such as EAO-CRC Focused Survivorship Programs: How Are They Measuring Up? Specifically requested by our Young Adult CRC Survivor Program Advisory Group.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person – May, 2021 is right around the corner!

Interim President, Colon Cancer Foundation
