Innovations in Oncology: Bridging the Gap in Access to Next-Gen Anticancer Therapies

Chicago, IL US
June 1, 2024

Disparities in cancer care 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 meeting, Innovations in Oncology: Bridging the Gap in Access to Next-Gen Anticancer Therapies, will shed light on a spectrum of topics that delve into these health inequities. We aim to spotlight both the problems and potential solutions, emphasizing programs and research that target these cancer care disparities.
