The Summit on Cancer Health Disparities (SCHD25) is a premier annual event focused on addressing cancer health disparities. Building on past successes, SCHD25 explores implementation science to bridge research and practice, offering practical strategies to improve cancer care delivery and outcomes.

SCHD25 features lectures, panel discussions, debates, and case-based discussions led by leaders in cancer care. This conference brings together oncology professionals, researchers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to examine and address factors contributing to cancer health disparities with evidence-based interventions. A highlight is the case-based discussions, sharing real-world challenges, solutions, and lessons in cancer care. This year, SCHD25 will also explore AI's impact on cancer care and access enhancement. The event includes oral and poster abstract sessions for researchers to present findings and innovations, fostering knowledge exchange and collaboration.
