The Critical Mass Annual Conference the only meeting where a diverse
 group of critical stakeholders—patient advocates, clinicians, researchers
and representatives from government organizations and professional societies— come together on an equal footing as participants in a forum designed to break down barriers, promote knowledge, facilitate collaborations, and work together on initiatives that change the way young adults receive cancer care.

This year’s conference is a 1.5-day event that will be held in Chicago, Illinois at The Double Tree Magnificent Mile from Nov. 4-6. For the first time ever, the Critical Mass conference and the Oncofertility Consortium Conference are being held back-to-back so you can attend both all right here in Chicago. We will have a joint reception hosted by the Oncofertility Consortium on Wednesday evening, bringing together attendees from both conferences to mix and mingle. You can even get a discount on registration for attending both conferences! Simply register for one conference, email oncofertility@northwestern.edu to let them know which conference you already registered for and you will receive a discount code to register for the other. Learn more about the Oncofertility Consortium Conference here.

The Critical Mass Annual Conference is strategically designed to promote learning, interaction and collaboration in diverse formats. Plenary sessions feature exciting speakers, experts in their fields. Innovative breakout sessions focus on key issues and provide unique opportunities for discussion, problem-solving and generating new ideas. New research in young adult oncology best practices for clinical and community programs are presented. A robust poster exhibit features cutting-edge work by medical professionals, advocates and other pioneers in the AYA field. The ‘Hub’ Lounge is the networking heart of the conference, with workspace and a lounging area in the midst of free display space where attendees can show off their programs and services to colleagues and potential collaborators.

This year’s meeting will focus on the proverbial “elephants in the room” — the issues that commonly come up within the AYA community that are difficult, but necessary, to talk about. Related to treatment and care of AYAs, these issues include sexuality, death and dying, choice and decision-making, family building, and palliative care. On a system level, there are issues of funding evidence-informed approaches, services and care delivery. Through a mix of plenary sessions and small group discussions, we’ll be tackling these “elephants” head on, calling them out and strategizes how to address them, and share resources and information to face them.

A spot in the Hub is waiting for you!

The Hub will is the networking center of the 2015 Critical Mass Annual Conference, November 4-6, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. It’s a place to showcase your successes, new programs, collaborations and services.

Registered participants are encouraged to claim their 4’x4’ poster display in the Hub. If you have more than one person from your organization or institution attending, please work together to identify a point person for your Hub poster.

Hang a poster, flyers, pictures, a banner or even pockets full of take-aways – the space is yours!

This year’s conference theme, “Elephants in the Room,” focuses on the issues that commonly come up within the AYA community that are difficult, but necessary, to talk about with survivors and within organizations. The conference will focus on both patient care-level and systems-level elephants. We invite you to focus your Hub display on how your organization or institution tackles the elephants in the room.

Here are some examples:

Examples: Patient care-level Elephants

  • Family building and fertility
  • Sexuality
  • Palliative and end-of-life care
  • Finances

Examples: Systems-level Elephants

  • Program evaluation
  • Funding issues
  • Program development
  • Research barriers
  • Collaboration challenges

Patient care-level elephants
If my organization serves young women with breast cancer, I may choose to create my Hub poster around our programming for young women with metastatic disease.

Systems-level elephants
If my institution struggles with funding, I may choose to create my Hub poster around how we’ve innovated and collaborated with our community partners to bring deliverables to AYAs without breaking the bank.

All displays are welcome, whether you’re addressing an elephant or not.

When you register for the Conference, just RSVP to claim your spot in the Hub. Be sure to coordinate with your colleagues to ensure your program or organization makes just one reservation.

The space is all yours and it’s free with your registration, so don’t miss your opportunity!

If you have any questions, email Rebecca at Rebecca.block@CriticalMass.org.
