The ASPO Annual Meeting brings together the cancer prevention and control community to promote the exchange and dissemination of information and ideas; to identify and stimulate research areas; and to foster the implementation of programs in cancer prevention and control. To help inspire and propel cancer prevention research and intervention toward achieving health equity, we are delighted to announce that the theme of the 45thASPO meeting will be Health Equity, Culture, and Cancer.

Due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, the 45th Annual Meeting will be held virtually at a reduced cost. The virtual meeting will include the same dynamic content with multiple opportunities for interaction, discussion, and an exchange of scientific ideas.
