Dr. Zon encouraged folks to engage with the ASCO ACT network that provided simple ways for everyone to advocate for the policies that will remove barriers to Cancer Care including Prior Auth, drug shortages and funding for Cancer Research.

Keynote speaker, incoming ASCO president, Dr. Robin Zon, shares with DRIVE participants how the organization has been championing access to Cancer Care and Clinical Research. We all play a role in improving Cancer Equity.”
