A Conversation on Equity & Cancer

Thursday, November 12 | 10-11 am

Everyone in Wisconsin deserves the chance to live life to the fullest. Too many Wisconsinites are denied this opportunity because of historical and contemporary injustices, geographic location, and critical gaps in culturally responsive health care services.

Health equity as it relates to historical and systemic injustices will be addressed as a keynote during the 2020 Cancer Summit. We invite you to continue this important conversation as we host a discussion, facilitated by Southeaster WI YMCA, to discuss how race, racism, and health equity impact cancer control in Wisconsin.
