Let's Talk Cancer May 10th

Posted 2017 May 10

Let's Talk Cancer at Queen's University is a FREE one-day event for students in Grades 9 through 12 hosted by Let's Talk Science at Queen's University and the Canadian Cancer Society's Research Information Outreach Team (RIOT).

The theme of this year's symposium is Cancer Prevention. This year's event will be more interactive than ever, with a keynote address from a researcher at the Queen's Cancer Research Institute, a tour of the Anatomy Museum, and interactive activities discussing cancer prevention led by graduate students. Students will be given the opportunity to engage with post-secondary students and faculty while exploring career options, developing skills, and gaining a glimpse into real-world problem solving.

What is Let's Talk Cancer?
Let's Talk Cancer is a series of full-day symposia for secondary students that explores the use of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) as an integral part of cancer research. The goal of the event is to inspire the next generation of cancer researchers by showing them how STEM sciences play a role in cancer research and show students the impact of cancer research in their communities. The day includes seminars from research professionals along with a variety of activities designed to involve students with a hands-on understanding of how STEM contributes to advancements in cancer research. Last year, approximately 250 students in grades 7-12 from Kingston and the surrounding area were in attendance.
