Event description

Description

Clinical trials are the cornerstone to cancer innovation, yet enrollment is stuck at 5%. Something MUST change.

Patient participation in cancer clinical trials remains abysmally low. We will gather some of the best and brightest in patient advocacy, public policy, oncology and science to examine and discuss some of the cutting edge ideas intended to increase participation, minority enrollment and keep patients engaged.


Topics include:
  • taking clinical trials to the patient
  • breakthrough diagnostics and how they impact personalized medicine
  • a new program that is creating change and the revolutionary collaboration behind it


Bring your questions and ideas and be part of the discussion.
The following day, June 19, we will take what we discussed to Capitol Hill for a Congressional Roundtable involving members of Congress, biopharmaceutical company representatives and patient advocates.
