Event Description

While cancer is high on the political agenda many issues in cancer care still require a broad stakeholder dialogue, balancing pro’s and con’s to take action together. Improving cancer patients’ lives is indeed a joint effort. The debate started at the European Cancer Forum continues with early birds in a series of webinars. The discussion draws on the conclusions reached in the last edition and are designed to ensure that cancer care remains a priority in Europe, where one in four deaths are caused by cancer.

A lively debate, open and frank, not too scared to bump sometimes in the elephant in the room, can make a change. Wake up with the Issues in Cancer Care – The Early Bird Debate to hear what cancer experts, patient representatives and healthcare professionals have to say while Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan is being developed.

Join the next webinar “Head & Neck, the cancer you can see… but its impact is unknown to society” on 8 July 2020, from 8:30AM to hear from our distinguished guests:

Renew Europe Group (ES), Member of MEPs Against Cancer
