The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, is the nation’s leading cancer advocacy organization working every day to make cancer issues a top priority. ACS CAN unites and empowers cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, and their loved ones, giving them the training and tools they need to be heard.
The ACS CAN Minnesota Research and Innovation Forum is a premier event that brings together leaders from the business, education, medical, government and research communities to advance the work of ACS CAN. The event not only unites those in Minnesota who are fighting to end cancer, it serves to support ACS CAN and its work.
The October 13 event (time TBD) will focus on the cancer patient experience and what we can do to make sure all patients have equitable access to the care they need to fight their disease. Speakers will discuss innovative approaches to patient navigation, clinical trial enrollment, strategies to resolve financial toxicity, and access to targeted therapies. This event will be a hybrid event and will offer both in-person and virtual options to participate.
Event registration will open July 2022
