This call took place Wednesday, May 16th at 9am Pacific / Noon Eastern time.

On this call, Michael Lerner, President of Commonweal, and Founding Partner of CHE interviewed Heather Logan, Director of Cancer Control Policy for the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), about CCS' policy position on cancer and the environment, its origins, and its reception from Canadian and other constituencies to date.

The Canadian Cancer Society recently adopted the most comprehensive policy position on cancer and the environment of any national cancer society of which we are aware. While President Jacques Chirac of France has advocated an equally comprehensive approach to the environment and cancer for the French National Cancer Plan, the Canadian Cancer Society statement stands out as what many CHE Partners consider a model statement for voluntary cancer organizations.
