Indiana Cancer Policy Forum: Cancer Disparities & COVID-19

Wednesday, October 27, 2021 - 12:00pm to 1:00pmEST

Reductions in the cancer death rate have not been experienced equitably across racial, socioeconomic, or ethnic groups. In Indiana, for instance, Black Hoosiers have a higher cancer death rate than other Hoosiers and COVID-19’s impact – from loss of insurance coverage to delayed preventative care – could widen those disparities across the state.

Join ACS CAN for a wide-ranging discussion about the necessary steps the oncology community – and our public health leaders – must take to address the inequities in cancer care and outcomes.

Event Speakers & Panelists:

  • Tisha Reid, Purdue Healthcare Advisors (Moderator) 
  • Dr. Cameual Wright, Market Chief Medical Officer, Caresource
  • Cara Veale, CEO, Indiana Rural Health Association
