Participate to the progress on cancer in persons with intellectual disability

Cancers developed by persons with intellectual disability are poorly understood and different from those in the general population.

For psychological and biological reasons, the treatment of these cancers is more difficult.





During the second international symposium in 2018 on cancer in persons with intellectual disability, French speaking audience asked for a congress in French language.
The first Oncodefi National Days (Journées Nationales Oncodefi) will present the general cancer and intellectual disability issues. Poorly known field.
It will be a practical approach of these problems.
It’s dedicated to a French speaking audience, particularly for professional caregivers, oncology teams and families.

The National Oncodéfi Days planned for March 26th and 27th, 2020, are postponed to autumn
