ACS CAN Georgia
2020 POLICY FORUM : Cancer Research

The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) will host its annual Georgia policy forum on September 25 as a virtual event. This event will bring together key leaders and decision makers in government, research and academia to discuss emerging oncology and health care policy issues that affect the physical and economic health of Americans.

Forum Focus | The Future of Cancer Care: From Discovery to Delivery

Cancer remains a critical public health problem and how new cures are discovered and delivered will continue to change. Getting new and affordable cancer therapies from the research lab to the patient will require collaborative solutions from researchers, business leaders, providers, and policymakers. Join ACS CAN for a roundtable discussion on the future of cancer care and how we can work together to secure new investments in research, protect patient access to care, and ensure affordability.
