Companies Changing the Course of Cancer

Be sure to attend the 2011 American Cancer Society Corporate Impact Conference!


June 9 and 10, 2011 - Radisson Plaza Hotel, Minneapolis


Help change the course of cancer in your company and in your community!

Cancer has a major impact on today’s workforce. The estimated total cost of cancer to American companies is nearly $264 billion a year in health care expenses and lost productivity. Considering the significant threat this disease poses to the health – both human and financial – of corporations, the actual amount of time and attention dedicated to addressing cancer is incongruous with what is needed and even possible given all that is known about prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer.

The American Cancer Society Corporate Impact Conference addresses this incongruity by convening corporate leaders who understand the economic impact of cancer and are committed to changing the course of the disease. The conference includes a forum for members of the American Cancer Society CEOs Against Cancer® initiative, as well as program content designed for corporate practitioners who lead their company’s overall health management, health and wellness programs, corporate philanthropy, and community involvement initiatives.

As part of this influential group of decision-makers that can promote a healthier and more engaged workforce, you can help end cancer for good. You will bolster your bottom line with reduced absenteeism and health care costs while increasing employee morale and engagement in the fight against cancer.

What can you expect?

While there are numerous general health and wellness gatherings created for corporations, none compares to this ”boutique” conference, which focuses on cancer and the growing body of case- study research supporting corporate intervention to change the course of cancer. This prestigious gathering brings together an elite group of highly motivated corporate leaders to discuss the latest successful strategies around employee wellness and community involvement through a series of workshops and plenary sessions over the course of two half-days.

Participants at the inaugural conference were provided with valuable tools to implement proven, evidence-based, results-oriented solutions that can help lower health care costs, increase their company’s bottom line, and further the Society’s mission to save lives and create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Formal presenters included six chief medical officers from some of the most prominent national and international companies, including GE Energy, Quest Diagnostics, Caterpillar Inc., Bayer Corporation, and Pitney Bowes. In the face of such impressive presenters, one attendee remarked that the inaugural Corporate Impact Conference was “THE best conference value around, given the high-caliber workshops and presenters offered.”
