This annual oncology conference, 2023 Summit on Cancer Health Disparities: Reframing and addressing barriers to adoption of precision oncology, will feature lectures, panel discussions and debates among leaders across the spectrum of cancer care delivery. This conference will bring together oncology professionals, cancer disparity researchers, and other stakeholders to discuss the factors leading to cancer health disparities and ways to overcome the impact of these factors to optimize outcomes of cancer patients.
SCHD23 is an accredited continuing education activity (CME activity) that will foster collaborative interdisciplinary interactions and partnerships to stimulate the development of new research and clinical practices that reduce cancer health disparities and improve outcomes of the diverse patient population.
