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, Friday, November 8, 2019, 8-10am. This policy forum and networking event brings together leaders in business, cancer research, innovation, policy makers, health care delivery, and payers to discuss how we will prevent, detect, and treat cancer in an era of increasing personalized medicine. 

The Future of Cancer Care: From Discovery to Delivery

Cancer remains a critical health problem and how we diagnose and treat cancer will continually evolve. Personalized medicine is revolutionizing cancer care and research is the birthplace of this innovation.  The future of cancer is a world with more cancer prevented, improved early stage diagnosis, effective and affordable treatments with better outcomes for patients.
