2020 Kansas Cancer Policy Forum: COVID-19 and Access to Care

Cancer (Oct. 2, 2020) – The American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network fall 2020 event, being held virtually, will discuss cancer care in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Join subject experts from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8. A panel of lawmakers, hospital stakeholders, patients and cancer care providers will explore the ways in which COVID-19 has impacted the ability to access and afford timely cancer prevention and treatment, as more Kansans find themselves uninsured or underinsured. As the legislature prepares to return to Topeka, the event also will highlight public policy options aimed at reducing the burden of cancer and improving health as we recover from this public health crisis.
