We hope that you will join us at GHC23 for a conversation on “Global Equity and Cancer Control” with conference co-Chairs Dr. Gina Ogilvie and Dr. Caron Strahlendorf. The conference will host a wide range of speakers from around the world, giving us the opportunity to re-examine cancer control from a global equity lens with a particular focus on the global cancer burden on children and women.
