Cancer Equity Colloquium 2023

Cambridge, MA US
April 21, 2023 to April 22, 2023

 

 

This is a hybrid event


Now more than ever, the presence of social inequities in healthcare is evident. This two-day, hybrid event, the Cancer Equity Colloquium, will address the diverse issues that underlie cancer inequities. The goal of the Colloquium is to bring together individuals from healthcare, academia, private/public business sector, and the public at large to develop unique approaches to tackling these inequities. We know that impactful initiatives to promote cancer equity require the skills and experiences of individuals from all these sectors of society. The speakers will reflect a similar mixture of backgrounds. Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with each other and the Cancer Equity Colloquium faculty in hopes to develop novel partnerships.
