#ACCCNOC Welcome and Opening Keynote
Cancer Care’s Path to Recovery from the Global Pandemic
Debra Patt, MD, PhD, MBA, FASCO, Executive Vice President, Public Policy and Strategic Initiatives
As healthcare systems navigated how to best keep patients with cancer safe during COVID-19, it resulted in dramatic drops in access to care, including preventative screenings, cancer management visits, and surgeries. Now the impact on disease progression, cancer morbidity, and death rates are beginning to be realized. Learn strategies to increase awareness and ramp up screening efforts in your own community through programs like “Time to Screen,” a nationwide campaign that offers assistance and educational resources to connect patients with appropriate screenings and services.
