Biden Cancer National Summit

Cancer has touched the lives of so many people but it can take a while for solutions to move from the lab to patients. Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden started an initiative two years ago to spotlight cancer research and to find ways to accelerate advances in cancer research. On September 21, Biden will host an event in Washington D.C. to focus on what’s being done to accelerate progress in cancer treatments.

The national event will be live streamed, and we encourage you to watch these sessions as well:
