Cancer and the Community

April 25, 2017
Tampa, FL

The war on cancer is at an inflection point. There is mounting evidence that society is on the cusp of a major breakthrough, as immunotherapy and other novel, data-driven treatments are showing immense promise and saving lives. Yet, even as lives have been extended and saved, many cancer survivors contend with the aftermath of radiation, chemotherapy and other aggressive side effects of treatments for the rest of their lives.

How can policymakers, caregivers and medical communities prepare to serve a growing population of cancer patients and survivors? At The Atlantic's Cancer and the Community, we explored these challenges and learn what can be done to address them from researchers, experts, stakeholders, survivors and patients living with cancer.
