ACS CAN's 7th Annual New Mexico Cancer Summit: Access to Care and Health Equity
Pre-registration is now closed but you may register day of the event at acscan.windrosemedia.com
The NM Cancer Summit is a premiere event that brings together key leaders and decision makers in business, education, medical research, cancer care, government, and health policy
Amid this pandemic, it is more important than ever to talk about access to timely and affordable care.
Cancer affects everyone, but it doesn't affect everyone equally. In New Mexico, we know there are a number of barriers in accessing quality preventive care and treatment that our diverse communities encounter, which has become even more evident during the current pandemic.
This virtual event will convene key stakeholders in medicine, research, and policy to examine New Mexico's disparities in access to care and how we can move forward to address them.
