Every year, the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Firefighter Cancer Initiative looks forward to hosting the International Firefighter Cancer Symposium (IFCS) and ending the event with the Dolphins Challenge Cancer event. The IFCS is our opportunity to bring together members from the scientific, academic, firefighting, government, and labor/management communities to support the reduction of cancer risk in the fire service. Together, our mission is to extinguish cancer.

The 2024 IFCS will be held on February 22-23, 2024 in Miami, FL. The DCC XIV will take place on February 24, 2024.
