Stupid Cancer

How do we “hack” childhood cancer? There’s already so much variation between how to define who constitutes pediatric patients. The U.S. has over 1.4 million cancer survivors currently under 40, 500,000 of whom beat cancer under age 13, and the majority live with devastating co-morbidities, a consequence of ongoing care or remission. This panel will explore the era of the oncology consumer with advocates, bringing collaborative digital and social innovations that accelerate the change we seek.
