      Ernest Hawk, MD, MPH, is vice president and division head for Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and holds the Boone Pickens Distinguished Chair for Early Prevention of Cancer. Additional responsibilities include leadership of the Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment which fuels critical prevention research initiatives and infrastructures of the center, as well as service as co-leader of MD Anderson's Cancer Prevention and Control Platform. The Platform plans, implements, and evaluates evidence-based actions in public policy, professional/public education, and community-based service delivery to reduce cancer and related risk factors at the population level. His personal research interests over the last two decades include preclinical and clinical drug development for cancer prevention, the conduct of a variety of clinical trials in cancer prevention, and the inclusion of diverse and underserved populations in cancer clinical trials, clinical research, and cancer control programs to improve outcomes and promote equity. He earned his medical degree from Wayne State University and his MPH degree from Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, he received training in internal medicine and served as a staff physician at Emory University, completed a medical oncology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco, and completed a cancer prevention fellowship at the National Cancer Institute.

    Abstract

    The Keynote Address will highlight eight actions that individuals can take to reduce their cancer risk. These recommendations span lifestyle modifications, cancer screening and molecular prevention. The evidence supporting these recommendations will be reviewed. The presentation will also describe the elements of a clinical cancer prevention program, using examples from MD Anderson’s Cancer Prevention Center.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Identify evidence-based actions that can be recommended to individuals to reduce their cancer risk and understand the data supporting them.
    2. Describe elements of building a clinical cancer prevention program.
