CONNECT & LEARN

CAC2 provides its members with robust educational outreach through a bi-monthly webinar series and by enhancing opportunities for our members to exchange information and best practices. Foremost among these efforts is the CAC2 Annual Summit, which convenes each June.

CAC2 Webinar Series

We provide our members with access to the latest information from top research scientists and thought leaders from across the country and around the world, through our bimonthly webinar series.

Although access to CAC2 webinars are exclusively offered to our members, we have curated a limited number of past webinars and made them available for public viewing. Visit our Webinar Library to view a selection of past webinars

CAC2 Annual Summit

Our two-day meeting occurs each summer and is hosted by a different Childhood Cancer Research Facilities in the US. The Summit occurs on Day One, and features educational programming from scientific, regulatory, industry, and advocacy leaders from across the community. The Members’ Annual Meeting and break-out sessions occur on Day Two.  The Summit provides a unique opportunity to celebrate CAC2 member accomplishments, network, and identify new initiatives for strategic coordinated action that will make a difference for kids with cancer and their families.
