The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is the nation's leading advocacy organization working every day to make issues facing cancer patients a national and state priority. 

Advancing Research, Innovation and Health Equity

1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the United States will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.


As canCancer patient 1cer prevention, early detection technology, targeted and immuno-therapies advance, we must also advance health equity so that all people have a fair and just opportunity to live longer, healthier lives free from cancer.

Join us for the 16th Annual ACS CAN Research & Health Equity Breakfast on September 29th from 7:30-9:30am at 521 Overlook at Fenway Park, where we convene leaders from life sciences, health care, government, academia, and businesses to network and discuss how we can work together to accelerate research and innovation, and advance health equity across the country.



We are so thrilled to have Dr. Monica Bertagnolli, Director of the National Cancer Institute, as our Keynote Speaker, and Kim Driscoll, Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts, as our Featured Speaker, followed by a panel discussion highlighting the importance of innovation and equity to help end cancer as we know it, for everyone. The panel will feature Dr. Donald Ingber, Founding Director and Chaired Professor, Wyss Institute at Harvard University; Dr. Arif Kamal, Chief Patient Officer, American Cancer Society; and Kenn Turner, President and CEO, Massachusetts Life Sciences Center. There will also be an opportunity to network with more than 300 leaders from life sciences, health care, business, policymaking and more than 30 American Cancer Society funded cancer researchers.
