Own Your Health: The Power of Support & Self-Advocacy

Mar 11, 2023

2:10pm – 2:40pm CT

Speakers: Dr. Yvette Williams-Brown, Paige More
Moderator: Reshma Gopaldas

When people receive a cancer diagnosis, it can be overwhelming dealing with those emotions and the details of appointments and symptoms to expect and self-advocacy becomes an important tool in a person’s cancer journey. Our experts and advocates will explore the state of cancer in the US, the latest medical advancements and where gaps in science and care still exist. We will discuss the role biomarker testing plays in gaining a better understanding of cancer, insights on finding the right medical support team, and advice on how people can be their own best advocate to get the information and support people deserve before, during, and after their cancer diagnosis.
