MPHA members are invited to the November 19 annual American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) Research and Innovation Forum. While the event is virtual and will look a little different, participants can expect thoughtful discussion around cancer care and research in Minnesota.

The event will explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted cancer care, screenings, and research. 87% of patients say the pandemic has affected their cancer care in some manner. What’s more, this pandemic has underscored the health inequities that exist in health care.

This is your chance to hear from leaders working to prevent cancer, advance research, and create a more equitable health care system in Minnesota. Confirmed program speakers include Commissioner Jan Malcolm, Minnesota Department of Health; Dr. Shaji Kumar, Mayo Clinic Cancer Center; Dr. Jeffrey Miller, Masonic Cancer Center; Ann Nyakundi, United Family Medicine; Tsega Tamene, Pillsbury United Communities; and Representatives Rena Moran and Lisa Demuth, Minnesota House of Representatives.

ACS CAN is the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, working to make cancer a priority for lawmakers and candidates at the federal, state, and local levels.

Cancer hasn’t stopped during a global pandemic. ACS CAN and partners are committed to making sure all Minnesotans have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer.
