The conference included scientific sessions on: Environmental Epidemiology; Ongoing Experimental Studies at The Ramazzini Institute; Cancer Disparities, Occupational and Environmental Risks and Prevention Strategies; and Science, Health Regulatory Institutional Capacity, and Policies. More than 30 Fellows of the Collegium Ramazzini presented their work.
The Collegium Ramazzini was honored by the presence of special guest HRH Princess Dina Mired of Jordan, president-elect of the Union for International Cancer Control, who delivered a keynote address on Connecting the dots: the global fight against cancer and role of carcinogens in the developing world.
As always, the presentation of the Ramazzini Award to a scientist deemed by the Collegium Ramazzini to embody the ideals of Bernardino Ramazzni, was a highlight of the weekend. The 2017 recipient, Dr. Karel Van Damme of Belgium, gave an inspiring Ramazzini Lecture entitled, "Every worker is irreplaceable: a human rights approach to occupational health".
The 2018 edition of Ramazzini Days is scheduled for October 25-28 in Carpi, Italy.
