In this third episode celebrating the National Cancer Act's 50th anniversary, guests from the National Cancer Institute discuss health disparities with cancer. We delve into the gaps that various underserved communities face in their ability to access cancer care and participate in clinical trials and research, as well as how NCI has worked over the past half century to bridge that gap.
Making the fight against cancer more equitable requires diversifying cancer research, clinical trials and treatments.
