2020 Oregon Policy Luncheon
About the Event
American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society will host their annual policy luncheon, a premiere event that brings together leaders from the business, education, government and research communities. This year’s event will focus on the health disparities which lead to increased rates of cancer among marginalized and underrepresented communities and the public policy solutions required to reduce and address the cost and burden of cancer. If you are unable to attend please consider donating here to support our lifesaving work.
Health Equity Through the Cancer Lens
Cancer is a disease that affects everyone, but it doesn’t affect everyone equally. Health disparities adversely affect groups of people who have systematically experienced greater social or economic obstacles to health based on their racial or ethnic group, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity; geographic location; or oth-er characteristics historically linked to discrimination or exclusion. ACS CAN believes no matter your race, identity, where you work, how much you make or who you love, all Oregonians should have access to the resources to reduce cancer incidents and access to quality and affordable health care.
