2021 ACS CAN Missouri Virtual Policy Forum
Early detection of cancer through screening can improve survival by detecting cancer at an earlier stage when treatment is often more effective. Cancer screening has declined during the COVID-19 public health emergency, with an impact that may not be fully known for years. Missourians who have lost their health insurance are less likely to be screened for cancer.
Join ACS CAN for a wide-ranging discussion about the necessary steps the community must take to address these challenges. With existing inequality in cancer screening rates, we must work to reduce the barriers to screening. We will also explore new innovations in cancer early detection and public policies that support these exciting breakthroughs.
