Bridging Hematologic Cancer Disparities: A Path to Equity

San Diego, CA US
December 9, 2023

Disparities in hematologic cancers can manifest in various ways, including differences in incidence, access to care, treatment outcomes, and survival rates among diverse population groups. Addressing these disparities is essential for providing equitable patient care and improving overall outcomes.
The gaps observed in cancer care are rooted not only in healthcare accessibility challenges but also in cultural obstacles, entrenched racism, environmental disadvantages, hereditary risk factors, ongoing health complications, and sustained stress due to prejudice and societal exclusion. The intricate interplay of these elements has mainly contributed to the challenge of curbing health discrepancies and achieving a balanced health landscape.
This hematology conference, Bridging Hematologic Cancer Disparities: A Path to Equity, will shed light on a spectrum of topics that delve into the systemic obstacles and racial discrimination causing these health inequities. We aim to spotlight both the problems and potential solutions, emphasizing programs and research that target these cancer care disparities.
