Cancer Equity Colloquium 2023
April 21, 2023 - April 22, 2023
Boston Marriott Cambridge | Cambridge, MA
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.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Recognize and understand existing inequities in cancer care
- Discuss solutions amongst the treatment team to address factors leading to cancer inequity
- Develop collaborative initiatives to promote equity in cancer care
This course is intended for Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Social Workers, Other members of the healthcare team, General Public, and Patients & Caregivers.
