It is my pleasure to invite you to an upcoming meeting on ‘Oral Cancer: Dentists saving lives’ on behalf of the MEPs against Cancer (MAC) group in the European Parliament and on behalf of the Council of European Dentists (CED), on the 23rd of June, from 13.00-15.00 in the European Parliament, room ASP 7F387.
The objective of this meeting is to raise awareness of the importance of early detection and treatment of oral cancer and the role of dentists.
The MEPs Against Cancer (MAC) group is an informal group of Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) committed to actions against cancer. The MEPs Against Cancer work together in order to improve cancer prevention and control in Europe, in the belief that European cooperation adds value to member state actions. In order to address the challenges faced by the EU, MAC works together with the European Commission and Council and collaborate with relevant organisations to reduce cancer incidence by 15% by the year 2020.
The Council of European Dentists (CED) is the representative organisation for the dental profession in the EU, representing over 340,000 practising dentists through 32 national dental associations. Established in 1961 to advise the European Commission on matters relating to the dental profession, the CED promotes high standards of oral healthcare and effective patient safety centred and evidence based professional practice across Europe.
In the 2014 to 2019 legislature the strategic goal of the MEPs Against Cancer (MAC) group is to reduce cancer incidence by promoting prevention, reducing mortality by ensuring equitable access to high quality treatment and care, and ensuring a good quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.
To register to this meeting, please do so via the MAC Secretariat via this link.
