WELCOME TO NFCS 2020 IN MIAMI, FLORIDA
We are excited to be hosting the second annual National Firefighter Cancer Symposium (NFCS).
Since reporting that firefighters have an increased risk of developing cancer, there has been a nationwide effort to combat cancer in the fire service. The NFCS 2020 will provide the latest health promotion and intervention studies aimed at reducing cancer in the fire service. The main theme of this year’s symposium will focus on best practices and making change at the individual and organization level.
NFCS 2020 will begin on Thursday, February 27th with opening remarks by the event coordinators followed by a half day of workshops led by scientists and firefighters. The second day will focus on presentations and interactive discussion on cancer prevention interventions culminating on February 29th at the Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC). Join TEAM HURRICANES – Firefighter Cancer Initiative in the DCC to raise funds that directly support firefighter cancer research.
