NCCN Patient Advocacy Summit Webinar

December 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The NCCN Patient Advocacy Summit: Cancer Across the Lifespan, which will take place on December 10, 2020 from ‎12:‎00‎ ‎PM to 4‎:‎00‎ ‎PM Eastern Time as a live webinar.  Please see the agenda copied below.  People with cancer often have widely divergent care experiences from screening through survivorship.  Differences in care delivery and outcomes may be due, in part, to varying patient needs and preferences according to age and stage of life; inconsistent implementation of guidelines, recommendations, and policies; and unintended age bias in health care.  The summit will provide an opportunity for a varied group of stakeholders including patients, caregivers, providers, patient advocacy organizations, policymakers, and industry to thoughtfully discuss the importance of providing quality, effective, efficient, and accessible cancer care across the patient lifespan.


There is no fee to participate in this webinar.  To register for the summit, please visit:
