Ruben Mesa: Such an important report and a call to action to have us achieve Cancer Equity!

Ruben Mesa shared a post by on LinkedIn:

“Such an important report and a call to action to have us achieve Cancer Equity! Deep gratitude to American Association for Cancer Research for their tremendous leadership to decrease health disparities in cancer. ”

Quoting

“A deep dive into cancer care disparities and what is needed to achieve health equity.

Ruben Mesa, MD, President of Atrium Health Levine Cancer, worked on the steering committee that helped put together the American Association for Cancer Research Cancer Disparities Progress Report 2024. It addresses disparity challenges, the work that has been done to create change and issues a call to action.

‘This report is incredibly important,’ says Dr. Mesa. ‘We can’t fix the equity issues in cancer care without recognizing the problem first. It’s why ‘for all’ is at the core of Atrium Health’s mission and I couldn’t be prouder to be part of this work.'”
