3. From Medscape.com: State of Cancer Care in US: 'Far From Adequate'
Viewing Medscape.com articles requires registration, but registration is free.
The article states with this:
"The US cancer care system is far from providing adequate healthcare to all of its citizens with cancer," commented Melissa Dillmon, MD, chair-elect of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) State Affiliate Council Executive Subcommittee.
"As physicians and as public servants, it is our responsibility to work towards addressing these disparities," she added.
Dr Dillmon was speaking at the launch of the State of Cancer Care in America: 2017 from ASCO at a press briefing earlier today in Washington, DC. It is the fourth such annual report.
