The National Cancer Prevention Workshop typically is an event on Capitol Hill on National Cancer Prevention Day that educates students, legislators, and provides continuing education credits for physicians, nurse and public health professionals. The 2021 event will be virtual and live streamed on the Less Cancer Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/LessCancer/).

"While this year has proven to have some extreme hurdles to overcome, we possibly have our most interesting workshop," said Less Cancer Founder Bill Couzens. "With approximately 70 presenters including physicians, nurses, scientists and public health professionals, we also have a wide range of legislators, advocates and educators. I am proud how in these times we have continued to keep the workshop bipartisan with a focus not on politics, but rather cancer prevention."

Speakers include several renowned leaders including physicians, nurses, public health professionals, scientists, government organizations, NGOs, advocates and legislators. Continuing education credits are provided for healthcare and public health professionals by the University of Virginia School of Medicine and School of Nursing and American University. After Feb. 4, the workshop will be available on Facebook, YouTube, and Coursera.

National Cancer Prevention Day first came about through a House of Representatives resolution led by Less Cancer on February 4, 2013. It states that work to prevent cancer impacts human health, the environment, and the economy.
