Iowa Cancer Summit

Iowa’s statewide comprehensive cancer control conference connects advocates and professionals to network and share promising practices in cancer prevention, screening, treatment, quality of life and health equity. 

To hear about the Fall 2022 Iowa Cancer Summit, make sure you are signed up for the Iowa Cancer Consortium’s Newsletter.


Our theme for the 2021 Virtual Iowa Cancer Summit was Resilience.

The COVID-19 pandemic has required our network to remain flexible while providing critical services, serve as leaders in a time of many unknowns, and like never before, witness the ways our communities and teams connected to one another.

The 2021 Iowa Cancer Summit was curated with members in mind – to reignite your passion for a variety of cancer control topics.

Sessions featured both national and local experts on topics including cancer prevention, state/federal policy change, and getting to know real people who compose the Iowa Cancer Consortium.
