Mississippi Policy Forum / Access to Care

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 - 10:00am to 11:00amCST

The ACS CAN Mississippi Policy Forum is a premier event that brings together leaders from the business, education, medical, government and research communities to advance the work of ACS CAN.  The event not only unites those in Mississippi who are fighting to end cancer, it serves to support ACS CAN and its work.

This year's event will discuss what is being done across Mississippi to increase equitable access to screenings and care.  Lack of health insurance coverage is one of the strongest predicators of poor cancer outcomes in the United States.  Additionally, financial, cultural, structural and informational barriers impact access and health outcomes.
