Join The Atlantic’s People v. Cancer Summit to Learn About the Future of Cancer Care & What Is Being Done to Address Disparities Among Historically Marginalized Communities

Categories: Foundation News

The Foundation for Women’s Cancer (FWC) is honored to be represented by FWC Chair, Ginger J. Gardner, MD, at this year’s People vs. Cancer Summit hosted by The Atlantic. It will take place virtually on Nov. 16, 2021, and aims to explore the latest science and the important ways in which prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and well-being are interrelated. The Summit will strive to answer the question: What is the future of cancer care? What can be done to improve lives for all—along the entire spectrum of care?

Dr. Gardner, Vice Chair of Hospital Operations, Department of Surgery, at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, will be joining Christopher S. Lathan, Chief Clinical Access and Equity Officer, Associate Medical Director, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Network to discuss the importance of screenings for all. There are also a number of other discussions planned throughout the day covering topics ranging from the frontlines of research to the importance of collaboration on health care delivery.

“It is an honor to be invited to speak at this year’s People v. Cancer event about the very important topic of disparities among different populations, including the importance of screening for all,” said Dr. Gardner. “The Summit serves as a valuable resource to those seeking to learn more about what’s on the horizon for cancer care, including gynecologic cancers.”
