Event Overview
Welcome message:

The UT Health Cancer Center and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio are hosting the first-ever international conference on Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos on February 21-23, 2018, in San Antonio, Texas. 


Despite substantial advancement in cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment over the past decades, addressing Latino cancer health disparities has not nearly kept pace with progress. With the growing U.S. Latino population expected to face a 142% rise in cancer cases in the coming years, important issues such as access to care, use of proven screening tests, advanced cancer diagnoses, incidence and mortality rates, survivorship and quality of life need a Latino-oriented focus.


Increased multidisciplinary collaboration is a key to stimulate expanded attention on Latino cancer research beyond only the public health community.


The Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos conference will unite health professionals from all backgrounds to tackle Latino cancer on many fronts. Expertise will span from basic research on biological differences behind disparities to community-level interventions to overcome barriers to care and address the unique needs of Latino groups.


This special conference will celebrate research advancements to date, explore new frontiers and gaps in this emerging transdisciplinary field, and kick-start discussion on research from bench to bedside to community to survivorship.

email to LatinoCancer@uthscsa.edu

• The abstract should be no longer than one page, single-spaced with one-inch margins

• Use 12-point Times New Roman font

• The conference theme that the project belongs to should appear in the first line of the abstract

• The abstract should include a title, list of authors, and department/division affiliation

• The body of the abstract should include background/introduction, methods, results, and

conclusion/significance/impact

• Work in progress may also be presented

• There is a limit of 3 abstract submissions per author

NOTIFICATION OF ABSTRACT STATUS

After submitting your abstract, you will receive a confirmation email, which includes an abstract ID number.

All presenters will be notified of their abstract status by email within four weeks of the abstract submission

deadline. Notices and instructions will be sent to the email address provided at the time of abstract submission.

PRESENTATION AND PUBLICATION

All abstracts are to be presented as posters only. Abstracts selected for poster presentation will be published in

the conference proceedings. Every effort will be made to reproduce the content of the abstracts as submitted,

except in certain circumstances where changes may be made to comply with publication style. If your abstract is

accepted; you will be responsible for developing a poster using the following general rules and guidelines:

• The posters should be 24 X 63 to fit on vertical x-banners. Vertical x-banners will be provided. Read the

printing specification details.

• The top of the poster should feature the title of the project/program, the principal investigator, and any other

contributors.

• The content of the poster should be divided into appropriate sections (i.e., background/introduction, aims,

methods, data/results, conclusions, significance/impact, etc.). Include illustrations if possible – figures,

tables, color photographs, charts. The material should be well labeled and legible from a distance of 2 yards.

Lettering should be bold. Avoid use of fancy fonts. Simple serif fonts (i.e., Times New Roman) are easier to

read than sans (without) serif fonts (i.e. Geneva).

• All posters must be identified with the primary program affiliation of the presenter and noted which grant

and core usage the research was supported by.

Posters in any other format will not be displayed due to the limited availability of x-banners.

REGISTRATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS

Individuals planning on presenting an abstract at this conference are encouraged to register and make a room

reservation at the conference hotel as early as possible. For more information, please visit the registration and
