2021 Pediatric Cancer Health Disparities Symposium: Disparities in Pediatric Cancer Genomics and Precision Oncology
presented by Northwestern Mutual Foundation
Texas Children’s Hospital is pleased to announce the 2021 Pediatric Cancer Health Disparities Symposium, presented by Northwestern Mutual Foundation, which will be held on Tuesday, November 9, 2021 in the Texas Medical Center.
Recent advances in pediatric cancer biology and genomics have generated optimism for the application of novel personalized treatment approaches with great potential to improve the care of our patients. However, questions remain about how these advances will be translated to populations who often encounter a number of health disparities. This event will bring together a transdisciplinary panel of scientists to review the current state of genomics and precision oncology and discuss the disparities that exist in this field and how we can overcome them to improve survival for all children diagnosed with cancer.
This conference is made possible by the generous support of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation. Northwestern Mutual launched its Childhood Cancer Program in 2012, giving all kids the chance to live life to the fullest by accelerating the search for a cure to pediatric cancer while providing support to families battling the disease and survivors struggling with treatment side effects.
