Addressing Disparities in Cancer Clinical Trials

Meeting Host

Georgia CORE (In conjunction with GASCO)

Registration Deadline

09-21-2022

Description

The Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia CORE) and the Georgia Society of Clinical Oncology (GASCO) are co-hosting a LIVE one-day statewide summit for oncology professionals to discuss overcoming barriers to clinical trial participation. Health equity requires that underserved populations in rural areas or defined by patient race, ethnicity or financial status have access to the best treatment options. At this summit we will:

  • Provide experts to discuss evidence-based interventions with additional data and context for the target patient groups
  • Create interactive breakout groups with the participants and experts to explore real-world ideas with those working with the target populations
  • Present the conclusions and possible solutions to increase diversity and reduce barriers to clinical trial participation in Georgia.

Please attend and make sure your experiences and perspectives are part of the solution.
