“Strengthening the Mediterranean Partnership in the Field of Public Health”, the international workshop organized by Colomed, was held on September 18th at the Istituto Superiore di Sanità, Rome, Italy.
The event focused on the importance of international cooperation in Public Health, with particular attention to the fight against colorectal cancer.
Representatives of public health institutions, associations, academics, researchers and clinicians from different Mediterranean countries spoke about their experience in this sector. They provided an interesting overview of current colorectal cancer-related issues in order to discuss possible options and strategies for future concerted actions aimed at reducing the disease burden in the Mediterranean area.
The workshop has been a great success both for the Colomed Team and all its Partners, who paved the way for a new international collaboration aimed at fuelling the advancement of knowledge, therapies and research in the field of colorectal cancer.
