CSCLA’s Health Equity Summit 2023: Elevating Patient Narrative in Cancer Care brings together leading national experts in public health, behavioral health, and oncology, to shine light on intersectionality in cancer care.

This virtual conference examines racial, ethnic, cultural, gender, sexual, age, and socio-economic disparities in accessing quality cancer care, elevates opportunities to eliminating barriers through cultural humility, and shares best practices to advancing health equity through cross-sector collaboration.
