Rapid Fire sessions - Short and sweet learning


The rapid fire session is not your average research presentation. The sixteen participants had a strict three minute deadline to present their research findings.

The rapid fire competition consisted of brief presentations of research findings from a wide range of cancer researchers in cancer lifestyle and risk factors. This format offered greater exposure to presenters, and gave attendees a brief overview of the wide variety of research being conducted in the the cancer lifestyle research arena.

Chaired by Terry Slevin of the Public Health Association of Australia, a wide range of topics were discussed during the session ranging from skin cancer prevention to household physical activity and the risk of breast cancer to cancer survivors’ priorities post cancer treatment.This year's presenters were selected from a competitive pool of more than 10,000 abstract entrants.
