CANCER EQUITY COLLOQUIUM
Now more than ever, the presence of social inequities in healthcare is evident. The two-day “Cancer Equity Colloquium” aims to improve patient care through addressing various aspects of these inequities and their contributors within the realm of cancer. Presenters from a wide array of backgrounds will bring unique perspectives to the following topics related to cancer inequity: language, health education, economics, and infrastructure. Attendees will not only have the opportunity to interact with speakers during throughout the symposium; the meeting will function as a vehicle for future collaborations.
The “Cancer Equity Colloquium” will be held annually and supported by ongoing monthly webinars.
