People v. Cancer: Equity in Care

What can be done to make cancer care more equitable?

Cancer pushes the limits of science, human will and perseverance. But when it comes to cancer care and the latest cutting edge research, not everyone benefits equally. A reflection of the state of health equity overall, patients of color too often find that their needs are not sufficiently being met.

In this episode of People V. Cancer, The Atlantic explored the health equity challenges facing patients, providers, and institutions and what is being done to improve cancer care for all.
