The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) is hosting an annual policy forum, The Future of Cancer Care: From Discovery to Delivery, in New York City, December 2018.  The policy forum brings together leaders and decision-makers in cancer research and innovation, government, health care delivery, payers, and employers to discuss emerging health care policy issues that affects the health of all. Personalized medicine is revolutionizing cancer and research is the birthplace of this innovation. Getting the right cancer screening, diagnostic, and therapy to the right patient at the right time requires collaborative solutions from employers, payers, innovators, providers and policymakers.
