SPRING GOES PINK is a summit that will bring together professional cancer organizations, cancer survivor organizations, health disparities researchers, providers, social and civil organizations, rural and medically underserved communities to share and discuss current information about the importance of cancer screening and early detection to reduce the burden of cancer in the state of Tennessee. Cancer experts will focus on screening and early detection of five cancers: breast, cervical, lung, colo-rectal, and prostate; and how they affect African Americans, LatinXs, and other medically underserved and rural populations.
Cancer ribbons are used to raise awareness about specific cancers (or even all cancers) and show support for those facing them. There are more than 50 cancer ribbons that represent individual cancers and other related issues, like cancer caregivers and bone marrow transplants.
