Commercial Support Policy

The Binaytara Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established with a goal to promote health and education. The BTF invites organizations to support and participate in the 2018 Summit on National and Global Cancer Health Disparities in a manner that complies with the essential criteria and elements of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).

The 2018 Summit on National and Global Cancer Health Disparities: Current Challenges and Future Directions is a meeting intended to create a momentum to minimize cancer health disparities, and to communicate new scientific knowledge in the field of cancer health disparities. The Binaytara Foundation (BTF) is committed to preserving the scientific integrity and educational value of its independent medical education activities and medical conferences. Any funds provided in support of this conference must be made payable to the Binaytara Foundation.

All pledges of support must be confirmed by written advance notice of the intended support. The terms, conditions, and purpose of the support must be documented by a signed letter of agreement between the supporting organization, and the BTF. Terms and conditions of support may not require the BTF to accept the supporter’s advice or services, including but not limited to the content, speakers or invitees selection, or other aspects of the conference. Supporters are entitled to review the budgets for the IME activities they provide support to.

The Binaytara Foundation will acknowledge support in program materials, but will not permit representatives of supporting organizations to engage in sales or promotional activities or to distribute promotional materials in the room where the activity takes place. Display or distribution of promotional materials, including standards related to product-specific advertisement and other product promotion, before, during, and after this conference must conform to all applicable continuing medical education (“CME”) standards set by ACCME.

Compliance with all applicable laws and regulations is required of every organization that participates and or supports the Independent Medical Educational activities organized by the Binaytara Foundation.
