This first webinar series will focus on some of the national priorities reflected in the 2022 Cancer Moonshot Fact Sheet:

To diagnose cancer sooner —Today, we know cancer as a disease we often diagnose too late. We must increase access to existing ways to screen for cancer, and support patients through the process of diagnosis.

To address inequities (cancer disparities) —Today, we know cancer as a disease for which there are stark inequities in access to cancer screening, diagnostics and treatment across race, gender, region, and resources.

To support patients, caregivers, and survivors—We can help people overcome the medical, financial, and emotional burdens that cancer brings by providing support to navigate cancer diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship.
