Dr. Tim Ward, a member of the REQUITE Patient Advisory Group, finished the Greater Manchester Marathon on the 10th of April this year. He ran the Marathon with a charity close to his heart: the PRDA, Pelvic Radiation Disease Association, a charity formed of volunteer patients, carers and health professionals who want to help people who are suffering from problems after pelvic radiotherapy - most common in rectal, gynaecological, bladder and prostate cancer patients.

This is one conference joining the activities of four scientific disciplines:
Medical Informatics (MIE2016), Medical Biometry, Bioinformatics, Epidemiology and Health Data Management.
It will serve as an important scientific forum for the exchange of new ideas and applications to strengthen health sciences on a national and international level. http://www.hec2016.eu/
The World Cancer Congress is run by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) and takes place every two years in a different country, always hosted by a UICC member organisation. The conference is aligned with UICC's purpose statement of uniting the cancer community, to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity and to integrate cancer into the world's health and development agenda.
