The 1st KESHO Cancer Screening Symposium, in partnership with AORTIC and with support from the UICC is scheduled to take place on 19th August 2021 and will be an interactive, immersive, virtual event focused around Innovations and Strategies for Screening and Early Detection for LMICs. Using a mix of pre-recorded educational presentations and real-time expert discussions, as well as interactive live Q&A opportunities, the Symposium will address topics relevant to an international audience. Faculty will provide anecdotal experience and review current data to highlight successes and help remove barriers to increased adoption of more uniform and effective screening in Kenya and East Africa.

  2. Highlight key innovations for screening and early detection that have been used in LMICs
  3. Learn about treatment approaches for early detection and screening.
  4. Interact with experts and colleagues from around the globe via live Q&A periods and chat.
