We hope you can join us on Thursday, April 15th at 5pm PT / 8pm ET for our inaugural Consano Speaker Series event featuring a talk by Dr. Nadine McCleary of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute:
Connecting Patients to Resources to Improve Cancer Care Equity
Dr. McCleary’s presentation will be followed by a Q&A session moderated by Consano board member, Anisha Goodly. Can’t attend the event, but want to support Dr. McCleary’s work, visit her full crowdfunding project and donate here.
Many factors contribute to health, but the social determinants of health are some of the most important, including housing security, health literacy, food security, finances, employment, and caregiving. The social determinants of health impact all phases of cancer care, from prevention and diagnosis to treatment and survivorship.
Dr. Nadine McCleary will share how her team is working to increase health equity and survival for cancer patients using “User-centered Resource Coordination and Engagement (RESOURCE)” to bring hospital and community resources directly to patients rather than asking patients to find resources themselves.
