Same day registraiton for our 2020 Cost of Cancer Policy Forum: 


More than 70,000 Ohioans will be diagnosed with cancer in 2020 and the decisions made in the statehouse or in the White House can be just as consequential for patients as the decisions made in their doctor’s office. Join ACS CAN for a virtual, wide-ranging discussion about the public policies that affect the cost of, access to and delivery of cancer treatment.

  • What are the biggest cost drivers of out-of-pocket costs for patients?
  • What's next for value-based cancer care? 
  • How can policymakers help reduce patient costs?
