Curing cancer is one of the most critical global challenges of the 21st century. In the U.S. alone, two people lose their lives to the disease every three minutes. In this session, we’ll explore how data and new technologies can help us detect cancer sooner, and how new therapies can make the disease more manageable. Still, despite significant medical advancements, many patients struggle to access affordable, high-quality care. This panel of leading executives in the healthcare industry will examine ways we can bridge the access gap, moving us closer to a world with equitable cancer care for all.
