Cancer Treatments for All: A Health Equity Panel

Clinical trials are the most important and reliable means available to provide scientific evidence for developing better therapies for cancer patients. Ensuring that all cancer patients have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials is imperative to the advancement of cancer care. Despite an overall decline in U.S. cancer deaths since 1991, not all patients have benefited equally from advances in prevention, early detection, precision medicine and targeted cancer treatments.
Join Stand Up To Cancer’s Heath Equity Committee leaders and patients for a conversation about the importance and complexities of health equity, and how we can bridge the gap to develop new cancer treatments we know will be effective for all.
