WELCOME TO NFCS 2020 IN MIAMI, FLORIDA
This year we hosted the second annual National Firefighter Cancer Symposium (NFCS) in Miami FL at Hard Rock Stadium 347 Don Shula Drive, Miami Gardens, FL 33056 on February 27-29, 2020.
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 provided the latest health promotion and intervention studies aimed at reducing cancer in the fire service. The main theme of this year’s symposium focused on best practices and making change at the individual and organization level.
NFCS 2020 began 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 focused on presentations and interactive discussion on cancer prevention interventions culminating on February 29th at the Dolphins Cancer Challenge (DCC).
