TAKE THE CANCER CQ EQUITY PLEDGE TODAY!
While health disparities are clearly documented throughout healthcare, they are ever present in the world of cancer care. In the Black community, there are roughly 73,030 cancer deaths each year and over 42,000 cancer deaths among Latino patients. Minority patients are also at higher risk of prostate cancer, lung cancer, triple negative breast cancer, colon cancer, and more.
Among all ethnic groups in the United States, African-American males have the highest overall rate of mortality from cancer. MD Newsline is committed to improving patient outcomes for minority cancer patients and helping to increase the 5 year survival rates of these patients by collaborating with oncologists, cancer centers, patients, and healthcare influencers to increase the cultural IQ of healthcare professionals treating cancer and increase access to valuable knowledge about treatment options for patients.
We are asking you to join us in taking the Cancer CQ Pledge promoting health equity in oncology below.
