The President's Cancer Panel Report: "Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk: What We Can Do Now"

May 18, 2010

The President’s Cancer Panel (the Panel), a three-person, federal advisory committee appointed by the President, was established in 1971 with the passage of the National Cancer Act. The Panel is charged with monitoring the development and execution of the activities of the National Cancer Program. Each year, the Panel holds at least four public meetings to solicit input from a variety of stakeholders and submits an annual report to the President of the United States with recommendations focused on improving the National Cancer Program.
 
The Panel’s latest report, Reducing Environmental Cancer Risk What We Can Do Now, was released on May 5, 2010.

On May 18, 2010 CHE hosted a national partnership call to hear from representatives of the President's Cancer Panel and learn more about the report's findings and key recommendations. We also heard scientists' reactions to the report.

Richard Clapp, DSc, MPH, is Professor of Environmental Health, Boston University School of Public Health.
