The theme of the 2012 CDC National Cancer Conference is: "Uniting Systems, Policy & Practice in Cancer Prevention and Control." This theme was chosen to reinforce and reflect the need to:

- Discuss impact of disparities on access and quality of cancer prevention and control with a focus on innovative systems and policies to reduce disparities.
- Share the newest innovations in research and technology regarding cancer prevention, treatment, care and survivorship.
- Highlight global cancer initiatives and discuss how domestic organizations can benefit from and contribute to meeting global needs.
- Discuss cancer prevention topics with a focus on primary prevention.
- Discuss and identify how to effectively address cancer survivorship across the continuum.
The overall objectives of the 2012 CDC National Cancer Conference are to:
- Apply strategies to expand and improve the role of public health agencies and practitioners in cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation, and palliation.
- Translate research to practice to improve public health.
- Inform and engage policy makers on key cancer prevention and control priorities.
In addition, CDC will hold ancillary meetings on Monday, August 20, 2012 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
