About #SCHD19

The 2019 Summit on National & Global Cancer Health Disparities is planned with the goal of creating a momentum to minimize the disparities in cancer care. The summit will feature lectures, discussions and presidential-style debates among leaders across the spectrum of healthcare delivery. It is our hope that this summit will lead us in a direction to help thousands of cancer patients and their families who are still deprived of cutting-edge cancer treatment.
