17 June 2015

  • Alcohol Action NZ and the Cancer Society of New Zealand are hosting this first New Zealand meeting on alcohol and cancer.

Although the link between alcohol and cancer has been known for a long time, most people, including many health professionals and policy makers, remain unaware of the association.

  • The conference will address epidemiological, biological and clinical aspects of the link between alcohol and cancer, as well as prevention implications of the relationship between the two.

  • Keynote speaks will include national and international experts.
