Why we host this symposium | The Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy (JKTG Foundation) has long believed collaboration paired with research that questions traditional thinking can transform how we diagnose and treat cancer. Tremendous work is being done every day by researchers, survivors, cancer patients and care teams.

What makes this event different | By convening a distinguished group to talk possibilities, discoveries and the research behind both, we get one step closer to better health care for those diagnosed with cancer and better health policy fostering the right treatments for each patient with data and science to back it up.

This symposium is organized by Frank J.Rauscher, III, Ph.D., The Wistar Institute, and supported by The Jayne Koskinas Ted Giovanis Foundation for Health and Policy, The Wistar Institute and the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health.
