NSCLC Voices: Addressing barriers to optimal health care in underserved communities

Nov 04, 2022 8:05 PM (ET)

Hear voices from a Roundtable convened by Takeda and Gryt Health this past year. Trust and empathy plays a huge and important role in creating a welcoming environment for people interacting with the healthcare ecosystem. In this session, we will focus on communication and navigation, biomarker testing, and stigma from people with lived experiences in lung cancer. Together we will leave this session with a better understanding of the barriers that prevent communities who have been historically marginalized from receiving optimal health outcomes when living with lung cancer and solutions for change. Join us for this open dialogue and to share your experience with peers.

*NSCLC: Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

*Note: This meeting will be recorded. Participants can engage with the session as much as they are comfortable, i.e. turning on their video and/or unmuting themselves to speak.
