The Atlantic is proud to continue to bring People v. Cancer to audiences. The program gathers survivors, medical providers, patients, and scientists for illuminating conversations on a disease that remains perplexing and lethal.

At the fifth annual People v. Cancer, The Atlantic explored how the latest scientific breakthroughs are reshaping patient care and treatment, and how they have renewed optimism within the cancer community. Join us for demonstrations, the unveiling of groundbreaking research, and in-depth conversations from the front lines of the cancer community.
